Library loop: Library card holders get access to state parks

Submitted to the Sun
Snowshoes are available for rental at the Truckee Library.

Maybe you have heard the news, and maybe you haven’t yet. Incline Village Library (all Nevada libraries actually) is joining our California library neighbors in offering state park passes.

Those of you that have library cards to Nevada and California libraries have greater access to nearby State Parks. Please check with your local library for specific lending rules, but over here in Nevada, residents can check out a park pass for up to one week which will grant you access to all Nevada State Parks. Passes checked out from the Incline Village Library must be brought back to a Washoe County Library.

Get out, have fun, and explore.
