We now have library ZOOM passes available for the birthplace of forestry in America - the Cradle of Forestry.
Just below the Blue Ridge Parkway in the Pisgah National Forest, the Cradle has over two miles of paved walking trails and several restored historical buildings, offering many ways to have fun while learning about traditional Blue Ridge culture and forest management. There’s also an indoor Discovery Center with hands-on exhibits and a café. The Cradle of Forestry is located on Hwy 276 in Brevard and is open seasonally from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Buncombe County Public Libraries give library cardholders access to free passes for local museums and attractions. They’re called a ZOOM passes, and you can check one out with your library card. We have an online reservation system at the library website you can use to book a one-day pass for the location of your choice. Passes may be reserved up to one month in advance and most passes are family passes that will admit several adults and children. You can pick up your pass at any library up to one week before your reservation.
There’s so much to do in WNC and you can use your library card to do it! If you have any questions, ask at your library.
