This summer the Colorado State Library and Colorado Parks & Wildlife have teamed up to offer Check Out Colorado State Parks. Under this program, Colorado libraries offer — for checkout just like a book — backpacks containing a parks pass vehicle hangtag, a set of binoculars, various guidebooks, and other cool stuff. It’s a great way to visit our 42 state parks for free, and learn about Colorado libraries, too. You can also check out the guidebooks individually from the State Publications Library. With the arrival of fall colors, now is a great time to go Check Out Colorado!
