Did you know that you can get free passes from the library for:
Zoo Atlanta Family Pass
The family pass to Zoo Atlanta is a popular item at CCPLS locations, even with limited availability. Zoo Atlanta passes provide free admission for up to two adults and two children aged 3-12 (children 2 and under enter the zoo for free). To obtain the free Zoo Atlanta Family Pass, patrons must first check out a special DVD on the zoo and return it to receive the free pass. To learn more and to check the availability of the Zoo Atlanta Family Pass, call your library branch or find it in our catalog.
Savings for a family of four: almost $75.00
Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites
The ParkPass kit gives library patrons in Georgia free admission or parking to more than 60 State Parks and Historic Site locations of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Each ParkPass pass is available for check-out for one week to allow for free entry for up to four visitors. The kits also include a parking pass and guide booklet. The ParkPass is a budget-saver for families: most Daily ParkPasses are $5, according to the DNR.
CCPLS patrons are encouraged to reserve ParkPass kits in advance, especially for busy vacation seasons. Planning is also highly recommended as hours vary at States Parks and Historic Sites, with several operating under limited schedules due to tight budgets. To learn more about healthy outdoor adventure ideas promoted by the DNR, visit www.getoutdoorsgeorgia.org.
