Cultural Pass

YES, one again the Cultural Pass will be open for Clark County Youth Summer Reading Club participants at JTPL! The Cultural Pass is available to kids ages 0 – 21 and is a reusable pass allowing one child (if under the age of 16) and one accompanying adult free admittance to over 45 participating locations during the summer from June 1st to August 10th. A complete list of participating locations can be found at The locations are family friendly, including places like The Louisville Zoo and Falls of the Ohio State Park.

Kids will be able to sign up both in person and online through Beanstack beginning June 1. Remember, you MUST come and pick up your physical Cultural Pass from the Library before you can use it, and you MUST put your Cultural Pass number in your Beanstack account. Kids who live in Floyd County are asked to please sign up for a Cultural Pass from the Floyd County Library instead of JTPL.

To use the pass, simply present it at the location. If the pass is used for five locations, the pass holder will be entered into a special drawing held by Fund for the Arts.
