In addition to family passes to the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, the Contemporary Jewish Museum, and the Bay Area Discovery Museum, most branches of your Alameda County Library System now have free family passes available for a visit to the Oakland Museum of California. 

Each pass gives free admission to 2 adults and 2 children.  Dublin Library has 2 passes, which are available to be checked out for seven calendar days before being returned to the library information desk.  Alameda County Library card holders may check out the pass at the Information Desk on a first-come basis.  After use, a museum pass in its packet is to be returned directly to the Information Desk.   (Due to the popularity of these museum passes, Dublin Library does not take reservations for a museum pass.)
