Zoo Atlanta Library Pass

One pass is available for checkout at each participating branch and may be checked out once per year, per household.

  • Check out the Zoo Atlanta Library Pass DVD at your local Hall County Library branch. (No self-checkout; DVD must be checked out by the library staff.) When you return the DVD to your library, you will receive a receipt. Please save this receipt; it is required for Zoo admission.
  • Present your Zoo Atlanta Library Pass Receipt and your Library Card at the Zoo Atlanta front gate for admission.
  • Patrons have four weeks from the time of receiving the DVD/Pass receipt to redeem it at the Zoo.

  • Pass is valid for up to three guests; standard general admission will apply beyond three guests. The pass is valid for general admission only and may not be used for fee-based events or programs. Not valid with any other discount, offer or promotion; may not be redeemed for cash.
