Three library card systems divide New York City: the New York Public Library (for Manhattan, Staten Island and the Bronx, the Queens Library and the Brooklyn Public Library. Membership cards at all three will now offer a “culture pass” program granting free admittance to 33 museums and cultural institutions across the city. Cardholders can reserve two tickets at a time, with no limit on the number of visits. As a model for the future of library cards, even more cultural access bestowed upon holders is something beneficial to libraries and curious individuals that may have avoided museum until now.
