california state library parks pass program


The Alhambra Library has partnered with the California State Library in offering our library cardholders free vehicle day-use passes to over 200 participating state park units operated by the California State Park.


The Parks Pass:

  • Is available to check out with a valid Alhambra Library card - 1 pass per card user only.
  • Is valid for 10 days from the time of checkout.
  • Is not renewable. When the pass is returned, patrons may check it out again if it is available, otherwise a hold can be placed on one.
  • Incurs a late fine of $1.00 per day.
  • Can be placed on hold if all passes are checked out. Place a hold using your account in the Library Catalog. Or visit a Help Desk to place a hold or call (626) 570-3212. Held passes remain on the Hold Shelf for a maximum of 2 days.
  • Is valid for entry of one passenger vehicle with capacity of nine people or fewer or one highway-licensed motorcycle.
  • Is to be returned to the Alhambra Library Check Out Desk (Overdue passes will be deactivated and replacement charges will apply.)
