Adventure Pass

What is the Adventure Pass Program?

The library's Adventure Pass program provides free access to explore cultural and recreational attractions in your community. Each pass has different terms and conditions. For specific details on each pass and some general information, keep reading. Or, have your library card and a printer ready and go directly to the Adventure Pass reservation site.

Am I eligible to use the Adventure Pass program?

Anyone with a valid Westminster Public Library card can reserve a pass.

How do I get an Adventure Pass?

Go to the Adventure Pass reservation site and have your LIBRARY CARD and a PRINTER ready.

  • Find the place you would like to visit. You can make a reservation up to 60 days in advance. Hint: Use the calendar or click on the drop down next to the words "Next 3 days" to see more dates. If the pass is already checked out for the date you are interested in, the “Request Pass” button will not be available. If available, click “Request Pass.” Enter your library card number and PIN (last four digits of your phone number) and click 'Continue'.
  • Review the information that displays, particularly the 'Requested Date'. Decide whether you would like a reminder. Click 'Continue' again. Your pass confirmation will display on the screen - PRINT it now. Providing an email address generates a duplicate confirmation page via email for your records and also gives you a digital version of the pass which can be shown at some locations.
  • If you are not reserving a pass for the Denver Botanic Gardens or Colorado State Parks, simply take a print or digital version (as allowed) of your confirmation to the attraction for entry. If you have reserved a pass to the Denver Botanic Gardens or Colorado State Parks, the procedure is different. Please see details below.
