Check Out Colorado State Parks with Grand County Library District

The Check Out Colorado State Parks Program is going strong at GCLD. The program, the result of a partnership between Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the Colorado Department of Education State Library, provides each of our libraries with a Colorado State Park pass and adventure backpack filled with information and education activities, including field guides, state park information, and binoculars. 

“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.”

Patrons can check out the backpack, which includes a hang-tag park pass for entrance into any of Colorado’s 41 state parks, can be checked out with a library card for up to seven days.
