Even more to check out for Fulton County Library System cardholders.
Much like checking out a book, Fulton County Library System cardholders can check out a pass from their local libraries to use for free and reduced-cost admission at more than a dozen performing arts centers and museums around Atlanta. Most of these passes, available through all 410 public libraries in the state, can be exchanged for multiple entries to attractions on a given day. The Fulton County Library System recently expanded its Partnerships Program, adding three more destinations and opportunities for learning to the mix.
Atlanta Shakespeare Company is one of the latest attractions to be added to the already robust roster. Members can redeem their passes for free admission to one of the monthly performances at the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse where adult ticket prices usually range from $26 to $46. As such, the new initiative is opening the doors for patrons who otherwise would not be able to afford to attend.
The Computer Museum of America is another new member of the Georgia Public Library Service Partnership Program. The Roswell museum, which opened in 2019, has one of the world’s largest collections of digital age artifacts including a retro gaming corner, examples of NASA computers and a WWII-era Enigma machine. It has 35,000 square feet of space for kids of all ages (and their guardians) to meander. Buckhead’s Atlanta History Center also joined the partnership list. Other attractions include Chattahoochee Nature Center, Alliance Theatre, Zoo Atlanta, Georgia Aquarium, The Breman Museum and more. Information about how to redeem passes as well as any blackout dates is available online on the Georgia libraries website.
