Here’s how it works:

  • There is one pass available for use any day the Presidential Library and Museum is open. This is NOT a pass into the other properties (the Mansion, Val-Kill, Top Cottage)
  • Call the reference desk at the Poughkeepsie Public Library District to reserve the pass. Call (845) 485-3445 x 3702 with your library card and email address readily available and the day and date for which you wish to have the pass.
  • Staff will take your library card barcode and email address over the phone and email you the pass. You may only request the pass for one day at a time.
  • Go to the Presidential Library on the day and date of the pass and present ID, your library card, and the pass for entry into the site.
