Georgia families can check out free excursions to Zoo Atlanta just by owning a library card. A new partnership between Zoo Atlanta and the Georgia Public Library Service allows adults with valid library cards access to the Zoo Atlanta family pass at public library branches including the Barnesville-Lamar County Library.Launched in 2009, the program originally applied only to branches of the Atlanta-Fulton public library system. This is the first time the program has been available in all 159 Georgia counties. ‘As one of the state’s largest living science labs, Zoo Atlanta is a resource for all of Georgia, not just Atlanta,’ said Raymond B. King, president and CEO of Zoo Atlanta. ‘We’re proud to partner with the Georgia Public Library Service on increased access for everyone in our state.’The pass may be checked out once a year, per card, per household and is valid for two adults and up to two children. The pass is not valid for fee-based events or programs and may not be combined with other discounts or promotions. Standard general admission will apply to families with additional children; children must be accompanied by an adult.For more information, call the B-LC Library at 770-358-3270.
