A library of learning and doing!
Public libraries are all about providing access to stories, ideas, and life-long learning. And sometimes the best way to learn is by doing! We've partnered
with cultural and recreational organizations across the province to give you the opportunity to try out new experiences.
NL residents can use the NLPL Connect Pass program to book a pass for free admission to a wide range of museums, art galleries, parks, gardens, recreational facilities, performing arts shows, and sports games. Save money, have fun, and learn more about what Newfoundland and Labrador has to offer. All you need is an NLPL library card.
How does it work?
Learn how to book a pass online with this video tutorial on our YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/fAtlUCy5lAE.
Who can borrow a pass?
The NLPL Connect Pass is a program for residents of Newfoundland and Labrador who are 13 and older and have an NLPL library card. Don't have a card yet? No problem! Sign up for a free library card online.
How do I get started?
Click on “Book a Pass” and then log in with your library card information and browse available passes by date or venue. You can reserve passes with adult and youth cards. If using a children's card, you will only be able to browse. (Please note: Some patrons who are over 13 may still be using library cards that are classified as children's cards. If you're not able to book passes, please check with your local library and update to a youth card which will allow you to book passes.)
How many people can use one pass?
Each group pass is generally good for up to 2 adults and up to 4 children or youth (groups don't need to be related or live in the same household). The person who booked the pass with their library card must be present to redeem the pass.
Are venues accessible?
Many venues are accessible. Once you are logged in, each venue has a section with basic accessibility details and a contact for any further access questions or requests.
About our Community Connect Program
The Community Connect Program is a different way to access passes in this program, specifically designed for not-for-profit organizations in NL who provide services to newcomers, youth at risk, Indigenous communities, or other participants who might be facing structural barriers to accessing this program. If your organization is interested in the Community Connect program, please contact ConnectPass@nlpl.ca for more information. Access for participating community organizations here.
We have more than 30 locations and experiences across the province to explore including The Rooms, NL provincial parks, Provincial Historic Sites, The Geo Centre, The Memorial Botanical Gardens, The NSO, Opera on the Avalon, First Light Centre for Performance and Creativity, The Rogues Basketball games, The Growlers Hockey Games, and much more!
