FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - When admission fees go into effect at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden on July 19, there will still be ways for folks to get in for free.

The library will be offering passes for families to get in for free for one week.

"When you come to the library, most of our resources are free and open to the community," says library spokesman Todd Overman, "and we're just glad that we're able to also extend that to the Botanic Garden."

The passes are good for free admission for up to two adults and any children under 17 living in the same household.

"The only requirement is to have a Fort Worth public library card," says Overman. "The passes will be available at any of our library branches -- we have 17."

There are also ten mobile passes available through the library's smartphone app.

The passes need to be returned, since using an overdue pass will be futile.

"The checkout receipt will also have to be shown at the gate to show that the pass is still valid," Overman says.

When admission fees go into effect, they will be $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and $6 for kids 6-15 years of age.

Kids under 6 years of age will be admitted free of charge.
