Los Angeles County has no shortage of cultural riches.
And now if you’re a cardholder of the Los Angeles Public Library, you can tap into that wealth through Explore L.A., a program launched Dec. 14 to provide free or discounted passes to 18 participating cultural institutions and attractions.
“At the library, we believe in giving all of our patrons equitable opportunity and access to knowledge.,” said John F. Szabo, city librarian. “Explore L.A. is a natural extension of that, and we are proud to partner with all of these wonderful museums and cultural institutions in order to help make that goal a reality.”
Through that partnership, organizations each make a select number of passes available to cardholders each month at the library’s Explore L.A. website. Library cards are free to all California residents.
Offers include four tickets to the L.A. Zoo, gift shop discounts at La Plaza de Cultura y Artes or at the Hammer Museum (where admission is already free), and a pair of adult and up to four children’s tickets to the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County or the Skirball Cultural Center.
At the start of every month, the passes get replenished.
Los Angeles Public Library, which serves the largest and most diverse urban population in the nation, is the second Southern California library to offer this service after the County of Los Angeles Public Library.
