Press Release 4/23/2019 – Check Out Colorado State Parks at Alamosa Public Library

The Check Out Colorado State Parks program is available now at the Alamosa Public Library. The program, the result of a partnership between Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the Colorado Department of Education State Library, provides the library with a hang-tag park pass and adventure backpack filled with information and education activities, including field guides, state park information, and binoculars.

Alamosa Public Library patrons can check out the backpack with a library card for up to seven days.

The free pass included in the backpack allows one vehicle and its passengers into any of Colorado’s 41 state parks. As the checkout period is 7 days, a patron can use it in one park for a one-week/weekend camping trip in one state park, for instance, or could visit several state parks over the course of the week.

“We encourage all Coloradans to explore and learn through their libraries,” said Colorado State Library Development Director, Sharon Morris. “This pass and backpack program gives residents the opportunity to literally “check out Colorado State Parks” and discover the wildlife and beauty of our state.”
