Zoo Atlanta Library Pass & DVD
Pass Loan Program
The Zoo has instituted a number of rules limiting services and admissions to protect their animals, staff, and visitors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Before your visit, please call the Zoo [404.624.9453 (WILD)] or to visit their Know Before You Visit webpage for hours and any new information.
For 2021, the Zoo has instituted blackout dates for the Pass meaning patrons may not redeem the pass on particular dates. They are listed below and more information may be found on the Library Pass Page on the Zoo website. Blackout dates are:
- April 5-9
- May 31
- July 4
- September 6
- October 11
- November 25
- December 25
Using the Zoo DVD to Visiting the Zoo
The Zoo is accepting walk-up visits from library patrons who have a Library Pass receipt.
Check out the DVD from your library, take it home, watch it, and when you return it to your library on time and in good condition, you will receive a pass receipt which, as a one-time use, admits up to three (3) people to Zoo Atlanta.
You have two (4) weeks [twenty-eight (28) days] from the DVD return date and receiving the pass receipt to redeem it. To redeem the pass receipt, you must take it to the Zoo and present the pass receipt and library card used to check out the DVD at the Admissions gate.
- The pass receipt is redeemable Monday through Friday only.
- The Zoo DVD has a circulation period of seven (7) days and may not be renewed.
- The DVD does not serve as a pass and should not be taken to the Zoo.
*** You are only allowed to check out the DVD once per year per household. This may seem drastic, but keep in mind the Library Pass is immensely popular.
*** The DVD is to be taken home for viewing. It is not to be viewed in the library and immediately returned.
Official holds, as with a normal circulating book, cannot be placed on the Zoo DVD. However, provided the DVD is currently checked in and available for circulation, a temporary hold is allowable. This hold time is not to exceed 24 hours. Whether or not this policy is used is entirely up to each library system.
