Libraries across the state now allow their patrons to check out a museum

“Libraries have always been mostly about books, though in recent years they have added music and movies for cardholders to borrow and enjoy. Lately, many New Jersey libraries are trying a more active kind of cultural mission by buying memberships to area museums to provide their patrons with free or discounted admission to nearby cultural hot spots. Dozens of public libraries across the state are loaning out passes to the Montclair Art Museum, Grounds for Sculpture, the Museum of Modern Art, the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum and a host of others.”

    As you of all people I am sure realize, the Chicago Public Library has been doing this for, oh… forever?
