One-Day Courtesy Pass The Library offers to all members of the public a one-day courtesy pass between 8:30am and 4:30pm.* Application available at the Membership Office and Circulation Desk

Except in the case of academic researchers, a Courtesy Pass is valid for one calendar day’s admission only and cannot be renewed except in exceptional circumstances in the discretion of the Library’s Executive Director or his/her delegate. In concert with the public hours of the John Adams Courthouse, courtesy passes are available from Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm.  A Courtesy Pass issued to an academic researcher is valid for that period of time upon which the Executive Director or his/her delegate and the researcher agree to be reasonably necessary for the completion of the research and may be renewed if additional time is shown to be required.
