Thanks to partnerships with the Mattress Factory and Pittsburgh Botanic Gardens, Western Allegheny Community Library has been lending special passes for free admission to these local attractions for over a year. And now, just in time for Summer 2018 the library is adding five new passes to the lineup. The “Experience Kits” program provides free admission as well as additional educational information and suggestions on other things to do in the area – a pre-planned road trip in a bag! Experience kits can be checked out for up to one week at a time, and each pass grants borrowers free admission for up to four individuals to the given attraction.
- Heinz History Center (plus Western PA Sports Museum, Fort Pitt Museum, & Meadowcroft Rock Shelter)
- Old Economy Village
- Mt. Pleasant Historical Society
- Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum
- West Overton Village & Museum
And don’t forget the passes already available to the Mattress Factory and Pittsburgh Botanic Gardens! Please Note: Experience passes are available on a first come, first serve basis & check out for ONE week, NO renewals. Call the library at 724-695-8150 for availability & enjoy your adventures in the library – and beyond!
