Coming This Spring!
The Warsaw Public Library is proud to offer an Empire Pass for New York State Parks, which allows users to borrow free admission to hundreds of New York State Parks. The Empire Pass is your ticket to the great outdoors!–swim, hike, fish, play; it’s all free!
Here’s how it works:
* Visit the Warsaw Public library and check out an Empire Pass- just like a book! The pass may be borrowed for one week with no renewals, and no holds. You will be charged $1 a day overdue fines if the pass is not returned in one week. Contact the library to ask if the pass is available to borrow.
* Take the pass to a participating park and enjoy FREE admission! Participating parks listed here: https://parks.ny.gov/parks/park-results.aspx…
* After you have enjoyed your visit, return the pass to the Warsaw Public library. Pass must be borrowed and returned to the WPL circulation desk. Do not return the pass to the book drop or to any other OWWL Library.
Using the Empire Pass
The Empire Pass permits unlimited vehicle access to most facilities operated by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic preservation and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. Each Empire pass is usable for one motor vehicles except those used in the business of transporting passengers for hire including public or private buses, shuttles ,taxis, limousines or other livery vehicles. The Empire Pass will not be accepted if it has been altered in any way. The Empire Pass must be presented upon entry to the facility. Without the pass, you will be required to pay the vehicle entry fee. Lost or stolen passes will be reported to the New York State Parks and will be charged a replacement fee.
