Krause Memorial Library participates in Park & Read Program

Pick up a free park pass at any Kent District Library branch

The Kent District Library (KDL) is participating in the Park & Read Program through the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Park and Recreation and the Library of Michigan. KDL cardholders can visit any of the 18 branch locations—including Krause Memorial Library, 140 E. Bridge St., Rockford—to borrow a book and a one-day vehicle permit good at any Michigan state park and recreation area.

Many parks will also have hammocks available for Park & Read participants, so they can fully enjoy a great book in Michigan’s great outdoors. Michigan’s park system includes 285,000 acres of land, 13,500 campsites, 879 miles of trails, and nearly infinite opportunities for outdoor adventures. The Park & Read certificate will give people the opportunity to visit one of these many parks for the day—for free!

To participate, library cardholders should look for the Park & Read posters and displays in KDL branches. If there are any cards available, take one to the library desk to check out a pass. You will then get a certificate good for a one-day park entrance within the next seven days. Passes cannot be reserved ahead of time, and they cannot be renewed. Each KDL branch will have two passes available for check-out. So grab a book, pick a park, and enjoy a relaxing day of outdoor reading.
