Paris Public Library is a member of Explore More Illinois, a cultural pass program that allows Illinois public library cardholders to get offers from museums, park districts, historical societies, performing and visual arts centers.
Explore More Illinois is free and can be accessed 24/7 from any computer, tablet, or smartphone. Go to the Resources section on our homepage to link to the online reservation page and login with your library card number and PIN to place reservations by attraction and specific dates. While each attraction’s requirements may differ slightly, with a library card and the reservation pass, patrons age 18 and older may receive free admission or discounts.
This program was developed through the RAILS library system. Attractions currently include the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum, Vermilion County Museum, and many more. Additional locations are expected to rejoin the program as they reopen and occupancy limits are lifted.
