Check Out Washington

Patrons of select public libraries have a new 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 as part of an activities backpack kit containing binoculars, field guides and other interpretive materials. The Discover Pass allows borrowers access to millions of acres of state parks and other state public lands.

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.

Libraries participating in the 2020 program include libraries listed below. For more information, email Check Out Washington.
