Gloucester County Library System expands their museum pass program  

(Mullica Hill, NJ) –The Gloucester County Library System (GLCS) is proud to offer a newly expanded museum pass program that now features a variety of area museums and attractions.

Freeholder Lyman Barnes said, “Library cardholders can save on admission fees to over a dozen local area museums by taking advantage of the museum pass program.  This is one of the many benefits available to our library members and we encourage our patrons to take full advantage of our no-cost programs.”
