State Park and Historic Site Passes

Vermont Department of Libraries, the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, & Recreation, and the Agency of Commerce and Community Development’s Division for Historic Preservation State-Owned Historic Sites Program.

The State Park and Historic Site Passes Program allows library patrons to check-out passes directly from their local library. These passes allow for free admission of one car holding up to eight people into a Vermont State Park or Vermont Historical Site.

Vermont's local public libraries are provided one State Park pass and one State Historic Site pass in the spring. Academic libraries are provided with one State Historic Site pass. This program is jointly sponsored the Department of Libraries, the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation and the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation State-Owned Historic Sites Program

Additional Passes

Libraries may purchase additional State Parks passes at a discounted rate by calling 1-888-409-7579 and Historic Site passes at a discounted rate by calling 1-802-828-3540.

Damaged Passes

If a pass has been damaged or lost by the library an additional replacement pass can be requested from the Department. The damaged pass should be destroyed. If a library patron has borrowed and not returned a pass libraries should follow their policies for billing and replacement. The Department of Libraries has provided a sample policy to fill out and use when drafting library policy.

Statistics

The program is jointly sponsored the Department of Libraries, the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation and the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation State-Owned Historic Sites Program. Our co-sponsors have asked us to provide circulation statistics at the end of the season. The statistics may also encourage other state agencies to participate with Vermont libraries. All participating libraries are required to submit their pass circulation statistics via a survey issued by the Department in the fall/winter. Please keep track of the circulation of these two passes.
