State Parks & Zoo Atlanta Passes

The library is happy to be able to offer our patrons free access to both state parks and Zoo Atlanta. Each branch in the system-except for Auburn Avenue- has one of each that can be checked out and used for free entrance for families of 4 (or you and 3 friends!). These passes cannot be reserved/placed on hold or renewed-they are first come, first serve.

The Zoo Atlanta pass works for general admission only and cannot be used for any special events.

The Georgia State Parks pass is good for free parking or admission at any of the 63 state park or historic site for up to 5 days.

Ask at any AFPLS library location for more information and to see if the passes are currently available for checkout.
