Library patrons ‘clamoring’ for ParkPasses
Before you pack up for a trip to a state park or historic site, you may want to stop by your local library first.
For the second year in a row, Georgia libraries are implementing the ParkPass program in partnership with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. "It works just like a book. Library (patrons) can check the passes out for one week," said Alan Harkness, director of the Piedmont Regional Library System, which includes Jackson, Banks and Barrow counties.
With the passes, library card holders can get free parking or admission to more than 60 Georgia state parks and historic sites.
