Back for a second summer, the Department of Natural Resources and the Library of Michigan are again offering Park & Read passes to be checked out through our Check It Out: Circulating Memberships program.
Park & Read allows Grand Rapids Public Library card-holders the ability to “check-out” a one-day pass to any Michigan state park or recreation area in lieu of the resident daily motor vehicle permit. This $6 savings also provides free access to the more than 500 events taking place in state parks throughout the summer.
For those interested in bringing along a library book for serious beach reading, 71 of the state parks have hammocks available for Park & Read users to borrow while on-site for the day so they can fully enjoy a great book in Michigan’s great outdoors.
Passes are available for seven days from check-out and can be used for one day at one one of Michigan’s 98 state parks. Passes are valid for day-use only. The program runs through October 1, 2010.
Stop by any GRPL location to check out a Park & Read pass and get out and enjoy the summer!
