Your Ticket to Discounts
As a member of the Erie Station Village community, you’re used to getting a good VIP deal. Thankfully, though, ours isn’t the only one in town. If you’ve been wanting to Rochester’s wealth of cultural events but shied away due to sticker shock, or would just enjoy a little discount now and then, we have another VIP program for you. It’s at the library! We’re talking savings at places like GEVA, the George Eastman House, and the RPO.
The Very Important Places (V.I.P.) pass provides a substantial discount to enjoy the best of Rochester and Monroe County’s arts and cultural treasures. With a valid MCLS library card, inquire at any participating library [PDF] and check out a V.I.P. pass for a participating museum or arts organization. Bring the V.I.P. pass to the venue and enjoy discounted admissions or ticket purchases. Each pass needs to be checked out individually, so if you want to save at two places, you’ll check out two passes. You can check out each pass for up to a week at a time.
