This summer, library cards in Nova Scotia will allow holders to check out more than just books.

The culture pass program — a joint venture between the Nova Scotia Provincial Library and the Nova Scotia Museum —  lets library card holders borrow a downloadable pass through the libraries' digital media sites.

Nova Scotia Museum represents 28 museums in the province.  

The pass allows unlimited access to all of those museums for a period of three weeks for either one adult or an entire family.

Nova Scotia Museum said the passes are expected to be an in-demand item. But there are a limited number of passes, so the sooner the pass is returned, the sooner other people can use it.

The culture pass pilot project runs until Sept. 5.
