Parks Pass & Hyperlinks

This just in from a former #hyperlib student via email:

I just wanted to say hello and let you know that I’ve been thinking about you and our class! I was doing my MLIS homework one day and came across a free California State Parks pass that was able to be checked out from the Alameda County Library! I was amazed that we had this opportunity through our local library and didn’t know about it before.
I am a part of a Bay Area Hiking group on Facebook because I love nature, and I decided to share the information there, just in case others didn’t know about it like me. And BOOM it has become “viral!”
Everyday I get notifications of people “liking,” “commenting,” and “re-sharing” it! Even another Library re-shared it! (Image below). It’s at 2.7K likes and 400+ reshares!
I just thought I’d share it with you because it is totally the Hyperlinked library in action 🙂 and how we are all hyperlinks.

    Museum passes are a hot commodity at libraries near me. Some libraries offer as many as 20 museum passes for the surrounding area. We are only about 30/45 minutes away from NYC so many libraries provide passes for museums in the city as well as the New York State Parks pass. Some libraries also offer discounted ticket prices for museums and amusement parks. Always check your public library before paying an entrance fee! You never know what you will find!

    I’m part of my local Friends of the Library group and we just talked about the library’s park passes. Ours has one for the state parks that is so popular we’re probably going to fund a second one this year. Just another way libraries provide access for all!

    Our local library occasionally runs promotions for free park passes, but regularly provides museum passes for checkout. (See: https://www.aacpl.net/blog-entries/museum-passes-available-checkout)

    “The museum pass allows us to introduce more city and county residents, including families and younger audiences, to our Annapolis history and its connections to our larger national story. Historic Annapolis and the Anne Arundel Public Libraries share a commitment to enriching the lives of our community through exploration and discovery!” ~ Robert Clark, Executive Chairman of Historic Annapolis

    The passes are good for general admission for up to four people during regular museum public hours. They may be checked out for seven days and can be picked up and returned at any Anne Arundel County Public Library location.
