To provide greater access to museum exhibits and programs to ALL Door County residents, Door County Maritime Museum (DCMM) is excited to announce a new partnership with the Door County Library. DCMM family membership cards are now available for checkout for anyone with a library card at all branches of the Door County Library system.
The passes allow families (two adults plus children under 17) to visit the Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay, the Death’s Door Maritime Museum in Gills Rock, and the Cana Island Lighthouse in Baileys Harbor. They are ready for checkout starting July 1 at all eight Door County libraries, called “Door Access Pass.” The passes are checked out like other library items and are good for five days, and then left at the museum site. No holds will be allowed on the passes.
There are eight Door County Library branches: Baileys Harbor, Egg Harbor, Ephraim, Fish Creek, Forestville, Sister Bay/Liberty Grove, Sturgeon Bay and Washington Island. The library in Sturgeon Bay also houses the Miller Art Museum. Each branch of the library has copies of the new DCMM magazine The Beacon available in their magazine section. The museum also donated eight copies of the Journal of Cana Island Lightstation to the Door County libraries.
This new initiative combines with several other DCMM programs designed to increase accessibility to the exhibits and collections of the Museum for visitors and local residents. DCMM joins a large coalition of museums nationwide making a broad commitment to seek, include and welcome all audiences.
