NYC’s library card just got a Moviepass-sized upgrade. NYC library members can now access 33 cultural bastions throughout the city thanks to the new Culture Pass initiative, which seeks to give equal admission to the city’s finest attractions to all New Yorkers, regardless of economic circumstances.
