The North Charleston and American LaFrance Fire Museum and Educational Center has begun a “Museum Library Pass” program to be a cooperative partnership between public libraries and the fire museum.The goal of the partnership is to offer complimentary museum access to anyone with a library card. Each Berkeley County Library branch will receive at least two plastic credit card-style passes to the museum. The passes can be checked out for a one-week period. The pass will grant admission to the fire museum for two adults and accompanying children.The program is intended to foster a partnership between museums and libraries in the Lowcountry and follow the museum’s mission, which is to educate North Charleston and surrounding communities on the importance of fire and life safety through the history and evolution of the fire service. This is a joint effort offered through libraries serving residents in Charleton, Berkeley and Dorchester counties.
The Fire Museum is located at 4975 Center Pointe Drive in North Charleston. For more information on the Fire Museum, visit their website at http://www.legacyofheroes.org/.
