With summer and vacation time approaching, families head for the library for books and cultural programs to enhance the weeks of summer. The Conyers-Rockdale Library system is offering opportunities for free family passes for attractions around Georgia.
As part of the Georgia Public Library Service Strategic Partnership program with Georgia's public libraries and state and private organizations, library patrons can obtain a free family pass (with certain conditions), to visit the Atlanta Zoo, The Center for Puppetry Arts Museum in Atlanta, the Go Fish Education Center in Perry, Georgia, and Georgia State Parks.
The Georgia Park Pass includes a hanging tag for parking and a pass for visitor admission to historic sites in Georgia.
The Center for Puppetry Arts allows free admission to the Center's museum and discounted prices on performances.
Go Fish Education Center allows free admission for visitors to the Center.
Zoo Atlanta - The procedure to obtain the Zoo Atlanta family pass has changed from last year. Beginning May 1, the Zoo DVD must be checked out on an adult's library card in good standing, and taken home to watch. When it is returned to the lending library on time and in good condition, library staff will give the patron an authorized receipt which is good for free admission for up to four people (two adults and up to two children ages 3-11; children under 3 are free.) The pass must be presented at Zoo Atlanta within seven days of return of the DVD.
For more details on any of the Family Pass programs, and about the upcoming Summer Reading Program, please visit the library at 864 Green Street. Open hours are Monday-Thursday 10 a.m. -8 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
