Check Out the Arts with your Library Card!

Use your library card to reserve free or discounted admission to a wide range of arts experiences.

The same way you enlarge your world through attending programs and classes at your library and checking out a wide range of resources, you are now invited to broaden your cultural experiences beyond the library’s walls through smARTpass, an arts access website offering free and discount admissions to a variety of Twin Cities cultural destinations.

How It Works

Log on to https://smartpass.melsa.org/ using your library card number.

Browse or search for events you would like to attend (have your calendar handy!).

Carefully read the directions for any offers that interest you (some require calling the box office to reserve an assigned seat and/or you may need to show ID or your smARTpass voucher at the venue).

Reserve your offer!

Find more details on the smARTpass website, and in the video below.
