WOODLAND – The Yolo County Library will partner with the award-winning Discover & Go program to provide library cardholders free and low-cost passes to more than 40 museums, science centers, zoos, theaters and other cultural venues throughout Northern California and the San Francisco Bay Area through 2014.

In Yolo County alone, library card holders will have access to the Gibson House Museum and Explorit Science Center, two well-known, hands-on learning centers for families.

This partnership between cultural venues and libraries, launched by Contra Costa County Library in 2011, invites millions of California library cardholders to discover rich, one-of-a-kind cultural venues in their own back yards. The Discover & Go program reintroduces people from every community, age group and economic background to the powerful world of personal discovery.

“This innovative approach for bridging the literary offerings of libraries with local cultural activities ensures that libraries and museums continue to play a powerful role in enriching people’s lives,” said Yolo County Librarian Patty Wong. “Our museum partners are happy to open their collections and educational programs and libraries are thrilled to provide another vital service to the community by making what people read in library books come alive.”

With a library card in one hand and a Discover & Go ticket in the other, thousands of people every month are making discoveries, expanding knowledge, deepening interests and connecting their natural curiosity to the wider world around them. For a complete list of participating cultural venues and libraries, visit www.discover.yolocountylibrary.org.
