Check Out Washington: Discover Pass


Walla Walla Public Library patrons now have a unique option when they check out books and DVDs – they also can check out Washington’s great outdoors! A program called ‘Check Out Washington’ makes a limited-edition Discover Pass available to Walla Walla Public Library card holders to "check out" for a limited period. The Discover Pass allows borrowers access to millions of acres of state parks and other state public lands.

The pass grants users access to more than 100 developed state parks; more than 350 primitive recreation sites, including campgrounds and picnic areas; nearly 700 water-access points; nearly 2,000 miles of designated water and land recreation trails; more than 80 natural areas; and more than 30 wildlife areas.

Check Out Washington is offered by Washington State Parks in partnership with the Washington State Library and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and Department of Natural Resources.

In our immediate area, Discover Passes are required at Lewis & Clark Trail State Park, Lyons Ferry State Park, Palouse Falls State Park, and Tucannon Lakes as a selection of activities.
