The Virginia Public Library is participating in the MN State Parks Library Program. The program allows Minnesotans to visit state parks, free of charge. Through a competitive application process, VPL was selected to participate in this amazing program.

This program allows libraries to offer free state park permits that can be checked out for seven-day periods, June 1, 2021, and ending June 30, 2022. Virginia Public Library was granted 2 library park passes. To check out a library park pass, you’ll need your library card. Once checked out, the pass expiration date will be written on the MN State Library Park Pass place card by staff 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.
