The Culture Pass


We value your feedback! Please click here to take a short survey.

Available at Desert Foothills Library. Culture Pass provides library card holders free admission to top metro Phoenix arts and cultural destinations.

Library cardholders can check out a Culture Pass for FREE admission for two people at participating arts and cultural institutions.  There are a limited number for each organization.  Passes are available on a first come, first served basis; they will not allow renewals or holds to be placed on them, nor will staff be able to pull them for you.  You may see what's available at the moment in the library catalog.

The display for the Culture Pass Program is near the front desk.  Find the destination you’re interested in, and take the card to the checkout desk. Staff will give you a date-due slip admitting two people for a visit in the next seven days. You do not need to return the slip: it will expire.  Checkouts are limited to one pass per family per loan period, and a limit of two passes per month.

Passes may be limited to general admission only.  Special exhibitions may not be covered, and other restrictions may apply.  Check the institution for current hours and exhibitions.   More information at
