Passport to Puppetry
Check out the Center for Puppetry Arts museum pass at any participating public library in Georgia. Georgia families can now pay a free visit to Big Bird, the Fraggles, Wayland Flowers’ Madame, and a host of other popular puppet characters by using a library card.
Thanks to a new partnership between the Center for Puppetry Arts and Georgia’s Public Libraries, citizens with valid library cards can check out the Center’s new “Passport to Puppetry” at any participating public library in all 159 Georgia counties.
The “Passport to Puppetry” is valid for up to four free museum admissions — a potential savings of up to $33 per family. Parties with children must include at least one adult. The museum provides educational fun with more than 350 puppets from around the world, highlighting the fact that every civilization on our planet has its own unique form of puppetry tradition.
In addition to four free admissions, the “Passport to Puppetry” also entitles library patrons to attend a performance at the Center and/or participate in a Create-a-Puppet Workshop at a 25% discount, when space is available. Complete details, including valid dates, show times, hours of operation, and reservation information are available online at www.puppet.org.
Library ParkPass Loan Program
Georgia's public libraries are making it easier than ever for patrons to broaden their horizons outdoors as well as indoors. As part of the "Get Outdoors Georgia" campaign, a valid library card now allows patrons to borrow a Georgia State "ParkPass" and Historic Site pass from their local libraries.
The passes are good for free parking or admission at any of the 63 parks and historic sites statewide for up to five days. Because of the expected popularity of the ParkPass loaner program, families interested in borrowing a ParkPass from their local public libraries are advised to plan early, as supplies of the ParkPass are limited.
Go Fish Education Center
The Go Fish Education Center, in Perry GA, takes visitors on an educational journey through Georgia's watersheds to learn about our diverse aquatic wildlife, their natural habitats and the impacts of water pollution. Beyond that, the Center serves as a great resource of fishing information for any level of angler - where to go, what to use and when. Check a Family Pass out with your valid library card.
