After a competitive application process, the Duluth Public Library was selected to be a part of the MN State Parks Library Program. The program allows Minnesotans to visit state parks, free of charge.
Through the program, libraries can offer free state park permits that can be checked out for seven-day periods, starting June 1, 2021, through June 30, 2022. DPL was granted 4 library park passes.
To check out a library park pass, you’ll need a DPL library card. Once checked out, the pass expiration date will be written on a receipt and attached to a DNR branded place card by a DPL librarian for display in the patron’s vehicle dashboard.
After the seven-day usage patrons can recycle their passes, it is not necessary to return them.
Minnesota State Parks Library Pass users are encouraged to take a survey after their trip. The survey can be found here.
