Washoe County Library System is pleased to announce Discover & Go, a new service for Washoe County Library cardholders. Discover & Go is a nationally recognized partnership between libraries and cultural attractions offering library cardholders free and low-cost tickets to world-class museums, theatres, aquariums, zoos and science centers.
According to Library Director Jeff Scott, “Washoe County Library System is excited to offer Discover & Go to our community. We are thrilled that our cardholders will be able to take advantage of increased access to Northern California and Nevada museums, and look forward to expanding the number of local attractions available to our users.” For the Northern Nevada launch of Discover & Go, Washoe County Library System has partnered with the Nevada Museum of Art, the Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum, and the Fleischmann Planetarium.
How Does It Work?
For users of participating libraries, Discover & Go provides instant online access to free and low-cost tickets to museums, science centers, zoos, theatres and other fun cultural attractions. When logging into the Discover & Go site, you will need your full Washoe County Library card number and PIN. You can browse and reserve tickets by date or by attraction.
How Did It Start?
Launched by Contra Costa County Library in 2011 to provide greater access to culture both inside and outside of the library, Discover & Go now includes over 45 library partners and 90 cultural partners. Discover & Go was awarded the 2012 National Medal for Museum and Library Service, the nation’s highest honor recognizing exceptional contributions of museums and libraries.
