Libraries in the Montgomery County Library and Information Network Consortium served by the MCLINC system have available to the public passes for admission to museums and attractions in the Montgomery County/ Philadelphia area.  These passes are checked out just like you would any other library material. These passes are not available via Interlibrary Loan–to pick up a pass, you must go to the particular branch library offering the pass. Some passes have restrictions on residency ; most passes are for a group. For specific details you must consult the MCLINC catalog.

To find these passes in the MCLINC catalog, use the following search:

Keyword search for: museum pass
Search by: Any Field
Limit by: All formats


Consult the individual passes in the system for availability and restrictions.

The following are available in the MCLINC system at this time (07/2017) and the ones marked with asterisks are available at the Royersford Free Public Library. (Note – this list will not be maintained current, as these passes are purchased with a limited duration and new passes are acquired from time to time; consult the MCLINC catalog or go in person to the Library for current information or to place a request or hold.)

Used books donated to the Royersford Free Public Library by patrons and books withdrawn from the Library collection are on display in our Used Book Room. The Used Book Room is open during normal library hours for your browsing enjoyment!

Books that languish on our shelves are often placed in the FREE books bins near the front exit door.  Help yourself!

All books are eligible for “by-the-bag” promotions at $3.00 a bag.

All proceeds support Library programs.

We are NOT accepting donated books at this time, but all book sales are ongoing.

Browse our Bake Me a Story picture book collection and companion baking pans!  You may check out any of our picture books and also a related baking pan to do a reading and baking activity at home with your child.  The new books and baking pans are now a part of the permanent collection at Royersford Free Public Library and are available to patrons on an ongoing basis, using our normal check-out procedures.

The collection is geared to pre-kindergarten and elementary school children.  Parents play a key role as teachers in developing early literacy skills in children.  Activities such as listening to the story, discussing the story with parents, and baking a cake develop vocabulary, word knowledge, reading enthusiasm, left-to-right/top-to-bottom process skills, narrative skills, letter recognition, and phonetics. The baking activity involves counting, adding, subtracting, fractions, measuring, following directions, estimating, telling time, observing, predicting, weighing, and testing, all of which support math and science skills.

Books and pans can be checked out together or separately. The books all have a list of pan suggestions inside the front cover, but patrons don’t have to stick with those. Patrons must come to the Royersford Free Public Library to check out a pan. They will not be sent to other libraries through the inter-library loan service. We are also asking that patrons bring the pans back to the service desk at the library for check-in and please do not use the outside book drops.

The Bake Me a Story picture books and companion baking pans have been sponsored by a grant from Target Corporation.  We appreciate their support and commitment to education.
