Free Park Pass Lending Program Returns This Summer
The Saskatchewan Library Association (SLA) is once again partnering with the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association (SPRA) and the Saskatchewan Regional Parks Association (SRPA) to offer free regional park passes this summer.
Starting from May 18 to Sept. 15, 2023, people with a valid library card can borrow a pass from any Saskatchewan library and enjoy a seven-day loan period with free access to nearly 100 regional parks across the province. Last year’s pilot project led to the distribution of 800 passes, which circulated over 5,500 times, but only to participating library branches. This year, 1200 passes will be available for distribution to all regional library branches, libraries in Saskatoon, Regina, Prince Albert, and university libraries in Saskatoon and Regina. Passes must be borrowed in person and are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Library customers are encouraged to contact their local branch to ensure availability. Read more
