GONZALES, La. (BRPROUD) — Ascension Parish Library is now offering its cardholders an “Adventure Pass” for free visits to local and regional museums.

The library says it is one of the first in the Greater Baton Rouge area to offer an Adventure Pass. The pass includes access to The National World War II Museum, BREC’S Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center, Louisiana Arts and Science Museum, and the USS Kidd Veterans Museum.

“This is an opportunity to provide our residents with an equitable way to visit new places, spend time with family, or explore solo,” said APL’s Acquisitions Librarian Carrie Goodall. ”Our goal is to give the community access to items that support creation, exploration, and recreation without the monetary burden.”

Ascension Parish Library officials said the Adventure Pass expands on its Library of Things program which allows cardholders to try a new craft, take home a board game, or access educational tools such as STEAM kits.
