North Charleston, SC – May 20, 2009 – The North Charleston and American LaFrance Fire Museum and Educational Center announces the start of the "Museum Library Pass” program. This exciting program is a cooperative partnership between the tri-county public libraries and the North Charleston and American LaFrance Fire Museum and Educational Center. The aim of this partnership is to offer free museum access to anyone with a library card. Each library, including all braches, in Charleston, Dorchester and Berkeley Counties will receive 2 hard plastic (credit card style) passes to the North Charleston American LaFrance Fire Museum and Educational Center. The passes can be checked out of each library just like any other book or media and for the same period of time. The pass will allow the bearer plus one adult and all children under the age of 13 into the Fire Museum for free. This program will help foster a natural partnership between museums and libraries in the Lowcounrty and follow the museum’s mission to educate North Charleston and surrounding communities on the importance of fire and life safety, through history and evolution of the fire service.
