Check out Park and Museum Passes!

The library has a new collection of passes that can be checked out for free or reduced admissions to local Maine attractions! We have the following that can be checked out from the Circulation Desk to Bates community members:

Maine State Parks Vehicle Pass: This will grant up to a 17 passenger vehicle day-use only to Maine State Parks and Historic Sites like Range Pond, Wolfe’s Neck Woods, or Bradbury Mountain. The Parks Pass does not include camping. There are some use exceptions; the pass is not for use at Acadia National Park (managed by the National Park Service) or Baxter State Park (managed by the Baxter State Park Authority).

A full list of Maine’s state parks, public lands, and historical sites, can be found here.

The library has one state parks vehicle pass. You can check availability in the catalog.

Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens: Library staff make a reservation and print out/email the tickets for patrons. We can reserve up to two adult tickets and multiple children’s tickets. The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens are open May 1 – October 23, rain or shine. This pass does not provide access to Gardens Aglow during the winter season.

Maine Wildlife Park: Library staff will issue a copy of our Community Pass to patrons which allows up to 7 people a discounted rate at the gatehouse. Each member of the group using this pass will be charged a $3.50 admission fee (3 years old and under are free). The Maine Wildlife Park is open April 15 – November 11.
