How it works - My Discovery Pass

Free educational and cultural experiences

Visit local museums and cultural institutions for free with My Discovery Pass, available to Multnomah County Library cardholders. 

How it works

  • Reserve your pass. You may reserve one pass per venue per calendar year. You may reserve up to two passes at a time. 
  • Print your pass, or if allowed by the venue, view it on a mobile device. Once you print a pass, you cannot cancel the reservation. If you lose your print pass, you can simply re-print it (that's free at your local library). 
  • To cancel a pass that has not been printed, log in to My Discovery Pass and click "cancel pass." Passes expire immediately after the reservation date. 
  • If you don't use your pass or cancel your reservation, you will be able to make another reservation only under the terms and conditions set by the venue.
  • The number of passes available and terms of use are set by the participating organizations. 
  • Please bring your ID with your pass. Passes do not include free transportation or parking.

Troubleshooting

You might not be able to see any passes available. Frequent reasons for this:

  • No passes are currently available. Check back on the first of the month.
  • You already have two pass reservations.
  • You already got a pass from a venue(s) this year. Check back on January 1.
  • No passes are currently available for your age.

Sometimes library cards are blocked. The most common reasons for this are:

  • You have $20 or more in charges.
  • You are trying to use a card from a different library as part of the library passport program.
  • You might have just registered online and not picked up your library card at library location yet. You might have a student card.
  • Feel free to contact us for answers.
