For the safety of our patrons and with a continued effort to “flatten the curve," all Athens Regional Library System branches in Athens-Clarke, Franklin, Madison, Oconee and Oglethorpe counties will remain closed until such time that it is deemed safe to reopen to the public. Library staff remain on the job  serving our communities virtually.  Please feel free to contact us at if you have any questions regarding library service during this time. We will update the community as more information becomes available.

How do I borrow the Zoo Atlanta Family Pass?

Georgia families can now check out free excursions to Zoo Atlanta, just by owning a library card.

A new partnership between Zoo Atlanta and the Georgia Public Library Service allows adults with valid library cards access to the Zoo Atlanta Family Pass at any participating public library branch throughout the state of Georgia, including the Athens-Clarke County Library.

One Zoo Atlanta Family Pass is available for checkout in each participating public library. Interesting in learning more? Check out our Zoo Atlanta Program Page.
