New Program Gives Nevadans New Way to Enjoy State Parks

RENO, Nev. (775 Times, NV Globe) – The state of Nevada is introducing a new initiative that will let you borrow a park pass from your neighborhood public library to use at a state park.

The day use admission cost for one passenger vehicle carrying up to eight individuals is covered by the Library Park Passes. It may be checked out for a week and then returned to the library so that other people can use it.

In Nevada, there will be two passes accessible for users at each public library.

“I thank Nevada’s public libraries for supporting our efforts to provide outdoor access for all,” said Nevada State Parks Administrator Bob Mergell. “By making libraries a gateway to State Parks, our goal is to help more Nevadans explore the outdoors, while creating healthier communities with stronger connections to Nevada’s spectacular natural and cultural resources.”

The new initiative, which is supported by the Nevada State Parks Gift Shop Grant Program, is a partnership between the state’s public libraries and Nevada State Parks.

Boating, camping, and other specialized costs, such as those for special programs or tours, may be imposed as park fees. Federal, regional, or other public lands in Nevada that are not a part of the Nevada State Park system are not included in the pass.
