California State Library Parks Pass

California State Library Parks Pass

Mendocino County Library is participating in the pilot CA State Library Parks Pass program. Each library received one Parks Pass hangtag and each hangtag is limited to a 14 day non-renewable check-out period. Contact your local library for more information.

Research shows that spending time in the outdoors is associated with better mental and physical health, and that many Californians face barriers to accessing their parks. California has a wealth of state parks, and many public libraries are likely within driving distance of one. By reducing barriers to park access and partnering with entities such as public libraries, the state can help more Californians explore the outdoors and generate positive impacts in the area of health, natural resource stewardship, and historical and cultural connections.
