Discovery Program

The Deptford Free Public Library Discovery Program allows patrons to visit, free of charge, various museums and other attractions throughout the state of New Jersey. We hope to expand our selection of passes in the future.



All adult Deptford Free Public Library card-holders in good-standing, without any fines on their accounts, are eligible to check out our passes. Families may check out only one pass at a time.  All passes circulate for a period of three days. Passes may not be  renewed, and overdue fees and fees for lost passes will be strictly enforced. Patrons will be responsible for the full replacement cost of the passes if they are lost. Passes are available on a first-come first served basis. Availability is not guaranteed.
