(Forsyth County, GA) A library card can take readers to new destinations through books, but a Forsyth County library card can literally take patrons to new destinations - for free - when they check out tourist attraction passes.
Through a partnership with the Georgia Public Library Service (GPLS), the Forsyth County Public Library (FCPL) has a number of passes for the zoo, parks, museums and a popular theater available to patrons at no cost.
According to the GPLS, a patron who used each of the available passes would save more than $350.
Passes are available for the following locations:
- Zoo Atlanta
- Alliance Theatre
- The Breman Museum
- Center for Puppetry Arts
- Chattahoochee Nature Center
- Georgia State Parks
- Go Fish Education Center
- Macon Museum Pass (includes: Georgia Sports Hall of Fame, Tubman Museum and Museum of Arts and Sciences Macon)
- Michael C. Carlos Museum
“Some passes are incredibly popular and can be difficult to get,” said FCPL Communications Manager Leslie Marinelli. “We have procedures in place that make access to them as equitable as possible. For instance, the Zoo Atlanta pass can only be checked out once per year per household. Other passes, like the GA State Parks pass have no checkout limit and when I was a Cub Scout and Boy Scout leader I checked several out every month to take my scouts camping.”
Patrons should check the website for guidelines, restricted dates and replacement costs of lost passes.
