This summer, let the Fond du Lac Public Library take you to a Wisconsin state park – on us.

A limited number of free, one-day passes to any Wisconsin state park may be “checked out” from the Fond du Lac Public Library. They’re available as part of a new partnership between libraries such as FDLPL, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.

One pass will be available per family, and passes will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

To get a state park pass, stop by the checkout desk at the Main Library or at the Allen J. Buechel Branch on Fond du Lac’s east side. Library patrons will need to decide which date they plan to use the pass before they visit the library, must have an active FDLPL card, and must have a vehicle with Wisconsin license plates.

Passes may be used anytime through the end of the year that a state park is open with no blackout dates.
