Chattanooga Zoo Pass

Chattanooga Zoo has generously provided an annual membership card for the Library that can be checked out once a year per family for one week and used for zoo admission for 2 adults and up to 4 children per visit.  (If the card is lost, a $30 lost fee will be charged, and if it is returned late, a $4 per day overdue fine will be charged.)  There is a waiting list for the two Zoo Passes that we have, so place your hold now!  
 
This partnership furthers the Chattanooga Zoo's commitment to education and their mission to engage and inspire our community to better understand and preserve wildlife by creating meaningful connections between people and animals.
