You will never guess how you can now visit Nevada State Parks for free. There is a new program which just began this year, and state officials are teaming up state parks with our state’s libraries.
According to an article written by Duncan Phenix on 8NewsNow.com, if you have a Nevada library card, you can gain free admission to some of the most beautiful and scenic parks in North America, located right here in our state.
It is a brand new program coordinated by Nevada State Parks and Nevada Public Libraries. You know, I drive by a big, beautiful, library on my way home from 96.3 KKLZ just about every weeknight, yet I have never stepped foot inside that building. Why? I don’t know. I used to love going to the library – except when I had to write a report for school. But, when I was just allowed to browse in the sections of the library that really interested me, I loved it. Time would fly by.
Well, now that just about every book and every piece of information is available on the web, many of us do not go to the library anymore. So now, in an effort to get more Nevada residents to visit our state’s public libraries, officials from Nevada State Parks and Nevada Public Libraries have started this program. This program will also help Nevadans learn more about the beauty and history of The Silver State.
Per Phenix’s article: “Passes to the parks can be checked out at local libraries by anyone who has a valid library card in the state. While there is a limited number available, it allows the pass holder one day-use entrance fee for one passenger vehicle with a capacity of 8 people or less. Park fees may be assessed for boating, camping, or other specific fees including special programs or tours.”
Nothing to do this coming weekend? Then get your library card at a local library, and then get a pass to visit one of the great state parks in our vicinity. Enjoy!
