Borrow a Real Florida Reader State Park Day Pass at your local library

BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) – Did you know you and your family can visit Florida state parks for free this summer?

Well, you only need a library card from the Northwest Regional Library System to do so.

If you don’t have a library card, you can go to your local library to get one.

It’s something the whole family can get involved in and allows people to get out and see the state’s natural resources.

There are 175 state parks.

With the Real Florida Reader Pass, you can continue your learning adventure while enjoying time to explore new places.

“It would be perfect if you want to make it a family program, maybe you can look at some titles of your flora and fauna that will be in the parks and study in advance. And then go to the park service, it is good for one vehicle and so it will be up to eight people in the car that you can enter the park for free,” Sarah Burris, Northwest Regional Library System Library Communications Relations/Marketing Coordinator said.

The Real Florida Reader Pass is part of the “Oceans of Possibilities” summer reading celebrations for Florida Public Libraries.

Passes have a 5-day payment period, one checkout per library card. Every location in the Northwest Regional Library System has park passes.

If all are on loan, make a reservation by calling your local library branch. Passes must be checked and returned to the same location in the library.
