MID Parks expands partnership with Mariposa County Library

May 19, 2022

In addition to checking out day-use passes for Lakes McClure and McSwain, the Mariposa County Library will highlight outdoor recreation as a theme for its Storytime program later this month.

“We are excited to expand this partnership with the library,” said Brooke Gutierrez, Director of MID Parks and Recreation.“In addition to encouraging more visitation to the lakes, it will help foster a deeper appreciation for local outdoor opportunities in Mariposa County.”

In addition to a new informational display at the Library about Lakes McClure and McSwain, a MID Park Ranger will participate in the Storytime event on May 25. The program begins at 10 a.m. in the Library’s Kids Room, located at 4978 10th Street, Mariposa CA 95338. All participants will receive a free day-use pass to Lakes McClure and McSwain for fishing, biking, boating, picnicking and more.

“This is an exciting opportunity for youth and their families,” said Rebecca Adams, Systems Administrator of the Mariposa County Library.

The day-use pass allows access for one passenger vehicle to any of the five recreation areas on Lake McSwain and Lake McClure: Bagby, Horseshoe Bend, Barrett Cove (including Exchequer Mountain Bike Park), McClure Point and McSwain Recreation Area.

In addition to the passes provided to those attending the program on May 25, park passes will be available year-round on a first-come, first-served basis to be checked out by library cardholders. There are currently 10 passes available. The park passes can be borrowed for the same check-out period as a library book: three weeks. The passes may be used repeatedly during the time they are being borrowed.

The Mariposa County Library has multiple branches, each with its own days and times of operations. Those interested in checking out a parks pass should contact the library by calling 209-966-2140 ext. 0.
