Borrow a Park Pass and Visit NY State Parks this Summer

Once again Candor Free Library has a pass to NY State Parks available to borrow. Check it out and head to a park - the pass will get you free entry for a carload of family and friends.

Not sure where to go? Here's a list of state parks near and far. (For more information about park and historic site fees and hours, including when fees are charged, please contact the facility directly.)

What are you waiting for? Check out the pass, gas the car, and pack a lunch. Go. Explore. See cool things. Have fun.
Then return the pass so another family can enjoy it.
