Family Fun Passes

Planning a family trip or a weekend getaway? Explore Georgia with the Library's Family Fun Passes! These passes are provided by Georgia Public Libraries' partnership with some of Georgia's finest attractions and venues: Georgia's State Parks, the Center for Puppetry Arts, the GoFish Education Center, and Zoo Atlanta. These passes provide free admission as well as other coast-saving features for these venues. All you need is a PINES library card in good standing and a sense of adventure!

Please plan ahead as only a limited number of passes are available for check-out. Call your local library to check on pass availability or if you have any questions.


Georgians with public library cards can borrow a Georgia State Park Park Pass and Historic Site Pass from their local libraries. With a valid library card from a participating library system, patrons can check-out the Georgia State Park ParkPass which is good for free parking at 46 state parks, plus admission for up to four people at 17 state historic sites. Along with the ParkPass, patrons are also welcome to check out a Discovery Backpack to use while camping, hiking, fishing, or a day of picnicking on a mountain or lakeside.
