Free Rides to Library for Children & Seniors

Pocatello's Marshall Public Library is pleased to announce the return of the Reading and Riding Pass. The pass, which was discontinued last year, will begin on August 1st, 2010. Individuals age 18 and younger and those 60 and older with a valid library card can ride the bus to and from the Library for free.

The program was designed to assist children and seniors who may find it difficult to get to the library otherwise.

"We are thrilled to once again offer this popular service to the community, and we are grateful to Pocatello Regional Transit for making it possible," said Kathy Watson, Associate Library Director. "Our goal is to make it easier for children and seniors to take advantage of the wonderful services the Library offers."

The program is a collaboration of the Pocatello Regional Transit (PRT) and the Marshall Public Library.
