Explore all Southwestern PA has to offer when you check out our new 2023 Experience Kits. In partnership with Allegheny County libraries, the Sewickley Public Library lends passes to nearby museums and historical sites that offer free admission for up to two (2) adults & six (6) children. Each season offers new sites to visit, so there’s always some place new to check out.

Experience Kits from the Sewickley Public Library are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Kits can be found in the Children’s Department and checked out for one week at a time. 

Kits for the 2023 season will begin circulating in June. We recommend you call the site to confirm operating hours, specific health and safety policies, and/or time reservation requirements before your trip.
