Library-goers soon able to 'check out' state parks
April 9th, 2009 @ 1:23pm
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Nearly 50 Utah libraries or bookmobiles will soon offer a state park pass that can be checked out by library card holders.

The passes will be available through the Check It Out! program by May 1 or sooner.

The pass gives day-use entry for up to eight people in one vehicle at 42 state parks. Normal day use fees can be up to $10.

Parks that are part of the program include Snow Canyon near St. George and Bear Lake on the Utah-Idaho border. This Is the Place Heritage Park isn't covered and visitors to Antelope Island State Park will still have to pay a $2 causeway fee to Davis County.

Nichole Mallory, coordinator of the state's Rockin' Utah initiative, says the partnership with libraries is meant to reach Utahns who might not otherwise visit a state park.

Libraries participating in the new Check It Out! offered by Utah State Parks include:

Delta City Library
Dugway Post Library
Eagle Mountain Public Library
Fillmore City Library
Garland Public Library
Grand County Public Library
Helper Library
Highland City Library
Iron County Bookmobile
Kanab City Library

This is great!! My question is, how long can you have them checked out for. If you are going to the Grand Canyon for example you probably wouldn't want to drive there and back in 1 day!

It sounds like the passes are for Utah state parks. The Grand Canyon is in Arizona, so that's out. I'm sad that my library isn't included - but, except for the park at Bear Lake, most of them would entail a multiple day trip for us.

It's not free, but if you're a frequent state park visitor, you may be interested to know....I found out recently you can purchase a yearly state park pass for $70.
