If you have a library card you can now use it to check out a California State Library Parks Pass. The pass allows free vehicle day use entry at more than 200 participating state parks.

Roseville Libraries

The three Roseville library locations received these park passes as part of a three-year pilot program.

How does it work?

  • Library-card holders are able to check out the pass for seven days, then return the pass to the library by the due date for others to use.
  • Passes are not renewable.
  • Park passes are “lucky day” items. No holds allowed. First come, first served.
  • Passes must be returned during open hours to the front desk by the due date.

The pass is valid for entry of one passenger vehicle with capacity of nine people or less or one highway licensed motorcycle at participating state parks.

“Our libraries are trusted community resources for families,” says Director of Roseville Parks Recreation & Libraries Jill Geller.

“This partnership now allows anyone with a library card to ‘check out’ the amazing beauty and one-of-a-kind experiences they can enjoy in our state parks.”
