Park and Read Passes

Since we have distributed our limit for passes this year, the 2012 Park and Read program at CPL is over.

The Michigan DNR Park and Read program allows library cardholders the ability to check out a one-day pass into any Michigan state park or recreation area in lieu of the $6 resident daily motor vehicle entrance permit. Many parks will also have a hammock available at no charge for Park and Read participants to borrow while on-site for the day so they can fully enjoy a great book in Michigan's great outdoors.

Park and Read passes are available for one week at a time and cannot be renewed.
