We all know the library is so much more than just a place to check out books, and now it’s the gateway to the great outdoors!
The gist: You can use your library card to check out one of the 10 California Library Parks Passes available at the Palm Springs Public Library. The pass will let you visit State Parks for free.
- With these passes, kids and adults alike will benefit from an increase in physical activity and the reduction in stress that comes just from being in nature.
- This is all thanks to a pilot program started in April by the California State Library, California State Parks, and the First Partner’s Office.
Find your state park: California has some of the most jaw-dropping natural wonders in the country, and with this pass, you get access to 200 participating state park units operated by California State Parks.
- Nearby we have Mount San Jacinto State Park and the beautiful Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.
- Further afield, there’s the Crystal Cove State Park, Emerald Bay State Park, and Humboldt Redwoods State Park.
- Double check that your favorite park is participating here.
Details, details: The passes can be checked out for two weeks and offer free vehicle day-use entry.
- Each pass is valid for entry of one passenger vehicle with a capacity of nine people or less or one highway-licensed motorcycle.
- The pass is valid any day of the week, including holidays, if space is available
