Discovery and Exploration Backpack logoThe Glendale Public Libraries are now offering a collection of themed Discovery and Exploration Backpacks for families and patrons of all ages! These backpacks feature a variety of books, hiking resources and tools, including trail guides, binoculars, flashlights, telescopes, bug magnifying viewers and more. These can be used to explore the great outdoors at any of Arizona’s many parks and recreational sites or even in your own backyard. For a limited time, each backpack will include a free Arizona State Parks Pass!

We're also hosting an assortment of special outdoors-themed programming for all ages to tie in with our Discovery and Exploration Backpacks. Check the library's Calendar of Events to find out more!

Please note that you must be at least 18 years old to check out a Discovery and Exploration Backpack. Visit the library’s Discovery and Exploration Backpack display or a Public Service Desk for more information.

This project is supported by the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
