Library Program lets you “check-out” state parks
Milford Public Library has one State Park Pass available for check out. The pass provides access to Indiana’s 32 state parks and also to Indiana’s state forest recreation areas where entrance fees are charged. The pass will only be available for 2016. The pass is checked out on a first come, first serve basis and cannot be placed on hold. Check out time is one week.
“We hope many families in the Milford Community take advantage of the State Park Pass and discover a park for the first time, or make a return visit to a favorite park,” said Julie Frew, Director of the Milford Public Library.
The library has information on where the pass can be used and will have 2016 Indiana Recreation Guides available to anyone checking out the pass. This program is one way Indiana State Parks is celebrating its centennial anniversary. The Indiana State Parks system was a gift to the people of Indiana in 1916 in celebration of the state’s centennial.
