The permits are here, waiting for you to decide on a date to travel Kansas!
Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks has teamed up with Kansas Public Libraries to offer free park passes to library patrons. Seneca Free Library is participating so our patrons can get free one day passes to any of the 28 State Parks in Kansas. Permits are good for one day only and expire at 2:00 pm the following day. Pick up a pass, stick it on your windshield, and away you go! What a great time to explore our state! This program runs through December 31, 2022, but don’t wait that long because the number of passes will be limited.
Kansas State Parks offer many activities. Use the link below to search for State Parks and read information about what each has to offer, its history and more.
How long is a permit good for? A permit is good for 1 [one] day in the Kansas State Parks and all permits expire the following day at 2:00 PM.
Is the permit only valid at a specific park? No, the permit is good at any Kansas State Park, so a patron could visit more than one State Park in the allotted time frame.
How does a library issue a permit? 1. A patron goes into a participating library, presents a library card, and requests a permit. 2. The librarian asks patron to SPECIFY THE DATE they will be visiting the Parks. It could be the date the permit is issued or a future date. 3. The librarian will issue a valid permit with date of park visit written on it. 4. Patron uses the permit on this date to visit Kansas State Parks. 5. Once the patron has finished with the permit or the permit has expired, the permit should be recycled or discarded. There is no need for return.
