The Museum Pass Program is graciously sponsored by

THe Friends of the Woodbury Public Library.

The Woodbury Public Library’s Museum Pass Program, Adult Woodbury Library cardholders in good standing can check out passes to several local institutions. These passes circulate without charge for 7 days at a time.

Below you’ll find information on the museum passes currently available to our cardholders. For more information about how this program works, please see our Museum Pass Program Policy. To place a pass on hold, call or stop in the Library 856.845.2611.

Why have the passes changed?

The Woodbury Public Library purchases Institutional Memberships directly from each Museum. Each Museum pass expires after one year. Due to rising costs of institutional memberships, the Library has decided to rotate our museum passes each year so that our residents may experience as many different museums as possible.

How can the library get a pass to the museum i want to visit?

Due to budget constraints the Museum Pass Program is funded solely via donations made to The Friends of the Woodbury Public Library. Please let the Library know what museum passes you would like to see in the future. You may also consider donating to The Friends of the Woodbury Public Library with a notation that you would like the money to be used towards our Museum Pass Program.

*Please note that not all museums offer Institutional Memberships to libraries.

Currently, Woodbury Public Library offers these museum passes to Woodbury patrons:

  • The Gloucester County Historical Society’s Hunter-Lawrence-Jessup House Museum, as well as the Historical Society’s research library (Woodbury, NJ)
  • Museum of the American Revolution (Philadelphia, PA)
  • Independence Seaport Museum (Philadelphia, PA)
  • Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum (Cape May, NJ)
  • Mt. Cuba Center (Hockessin, DE)

These exciting learning tools offer a brilliant 20″ touch screen, headphones, colorful keyboard and child-sized mouse, and come loaded with over 50 educational games designed for ages 2 through 10.

On the 2nd Floor of the library, we have 16 computers equipped with high-speed Internet access, Microsoft Office 2016 (Word, Excel, Publisher, Access and PowerPoint) and a variety of other applications such as Resume Maker, Adobe PhotoShop, and more.

These computers are available for independent use by patrons over 8 years of age. Users under 8 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Our public Internet computers are also available for use by adults without LOGIN cards, subject to the same rules regarding parental supervision and permission for minors.

There is also one AWE Early Literacy Station on the 2nd Floor. This is primarily intended for the use of children while accompanying adults who need to work on our 2nd Floor public computers. As with the AWE computers on the first floor, it offers over 50 education games, colorful keyboard and child-sized mouse, headphones, and a brilliant touch-screen interface.

There is no charge for up to two copies per user per day; quantities over that amount cost 10 cents per page.** A ‘page’ is one printed side; double-sided printouts will be counted as 2 pages. Patrons are responsible for payment of all copies that they caused to be printed, and payment must be in cash – we do not accept debit or credit cards. It is suggested that patrons use the ‘Print Preview’ command to determine how many pages a print request may create before printing. Please pay for copies at the Reference Desk upstairs

Computers are available on a first-come, first-served basis; reservations are not accepted. A staff member can assist you in logging on to the computers. Please be aware that by using the computers at the Woodbury Public Library, you are agreeing to comply with the library’s Computer Use Policy.

The entire Woodbury Library building is a free broadband wireless Internet hotspot. You can access our network with any device (laptop computer, tablet, smart phone, etc.) that is compatible with common wireless standards. The network is designed for ease of use, so you do not need any passwords, PINs, WEP keys or encryption schemes. In most cases your wireless device will automatically detect the Library’s wireless signal, identified as ‘Woodburypubliclibrary-2.4’, and configure itself to use our system. If your equipment needs to be directed to our network manually, use the following values:

SSID (or Network Name): Woodburypubliclibrary-2.4, Woodburypubliclibrary-5 or WoodburyLibrary_EXT

Network Mode: Infrastructure

WEP: Disabled

IP (or Network settings): Obtain IP address automatically

DNS: Obtain DNS automatically

For more information about wireless Internet access at the Woodbury Public Library, ask at the Reference Desk on the second floor. Each computer model varies, so library staff is able to offer only extremely limited personal technical assistance with your configuration. Our wireless Internet signal is not encrypted or restricted in any way, and should NOT be considered as a secure or private connection. The library cannot take responsibility for any issues that may arise in connection with use of our wireless signal. Parents of children with access to wireless devices are strongly advised to supervise and monitor their use, as our wireless Internet signal is completely unfiltered. The Library and its staff are not responsible for Internet material accessed by any user, including children.
