Updates related to COVID-19 in New York

Due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 and the closure of social gathering places in the New York City area, Culture Pass service has been temporarily suspended. Passes for April-June 2020 have been canceled, the release of additional passes has been postponed until further notice. If your Culture Pass reservation is impacted, you will be notified by the library via email. You will be able to re-book at a later date, but please allow some time for records to be processed to reflect the change.


During this period, the libraries have partnered with 40 of our Culture Pass partners to organize a series of virtual cultural programs that will take place over the course of the summer. You can read more and find registration links for all upcoming events by clicking here.
