FAQs:

Picking up the Colorado Parks & Wildlife physical pass:
It is required that you have the reservation confirmation to pick up a physical pass. If you entered a valid email address, a copy of the confirmation was emailed to you. If you do not have the ability to print, you can save your confirmation on your mobile device and use that as proof of reservation to pick up the physical pass.

How to print downloadable passes:
If you did not receive an email confirmation with the pass or lost the email, you can retrieve your reservations through the booking site with your library card number. Enter your card number in the top right corner (see image below) and you will be able to see your list of reservations from which you can either print your pass or your confirmation. Unless otherwise noted in the reservation information document, downloadable passes may be presented at the museum on a mobile device.

Cancelling and re-reserving a pass:
Patrons can cancel an Experience Pass reservation by calling the Library at 720.887.2350 or 720.887.2301. If the reservation is timed entry, please also call the institution to cancel your reservation. Reservations can be cancelled before or on the day of the reservation, except for the Colorado Parks & Wildlife pass.

Once a reservation has been cancelled, patrons can re-reserve the pass without reaching their one pass, per institution, per year limit.

Returning passes:
Downloadable passes do not need to be returned; they are only good for the date on the pass.
For physical passes, please be courteous to the next patron by returning the pass by its due date.

Lost physical passes (not applicable for downloadable passes):
If the pass is lost, a fee of $10 will be assessed. Loss of the Colorado Parks & Wildlife pass pack will require replacement fees for the individual items in the pack.

Can I make reservations with my temporary library card? 
No, temporary library cards are unable to make reservations for Experience Passes. To gain access, please stop by the library to verify your library card.
