Library-goers soon able to ‘check out’ state parks

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

Highland City Library

  1. This post is just in time! We were looking up entrance fees to the state parks and balked at the cost. I will be heading to the library before we take our next vacation!
