Now available at both libraries:
Virginia State Parks Backpacks!
Your next visit to a Virginia State Park could start at the library
These are a new resource available to help families explore and enjoy the natural world thanks to a partnership between the Library of Virginia, Virginia State Parks and the Science Museum of Virginia.
Families can check the backpack out from the library and learn about nature in their backyard, local park, or at one of Virginia’s 36 state parks.
Each backpack comes with a parking pass that will enable the library customer to access any Virginia State Park at no cost. Backpacks also feature: pocket guides to bugs and slugs, animal tracks, Virginia birds, mammals, and Virginia trees and wildflowers; port-a-bug field observation container; Big Foot Leave No Trace Ethics Card; magnifying lens; dip net; and laminated sheets with suggested activities designed by both Virginia State Parks and the Science Museum of Virginia.
