CCPL: Gold Pass for Park Admission

Charleston County Parks and the Charleston County Public Library (CCPL) are pleased to announce a new partnership which allows library patrons to check out a Gold Pass for park admission.

A Gold Pass can be checked out at any CCPL branch on an adult library card in good standing. While the pass is checked out, the cardholder may use it for free unlimited admission into several county parks including James Island County Park, The Caw Caw Interpretive Center, Folly Beach County Park and many more.

Each open library location, including the Mobile Library, will receive five gold passes that will be available for public use. The Gold Passes used for this program have been underwritten by the Charleston County Parks Foundation.

Each pass may be placed on hold and will have a circulation period of one week. The pass will be renewable up to two times if no waiting list exists. The passes will have a late fee of 20 cents per day and $20 will be charged to the patron if the card is lost. Gold Passes checked out from library branches do not include admission to the Holiday Festival of Lights. 

Those interested in purchasing an annual Gold Pass can do so in-person at a park office, online at or over the phone at 843-795-4386.
