Library: Sci-Port passes are now available

Sci-Port: Louisiana’s Science Center is one of the best places in our area for families to visit.  That is one of the reasons Bossier Parish Libraries now offer Sci-Port passes at each branch for checkout.  The other reason is that it is a wonderful extension of our mission to inform, educate, and entertain.

A new policy was created to ensure our patrons are able to enjoy these passes to the fullest extent.  It reads as follows:

VickieHardin copyPasses for free admission to Sci-Port: Louisiana’s Science Center are available to borrow at each branch of the Bossier Parish Library (BPL) System.  Patrons borrowing these passes must follow the Bossier Parish “Library Materials Lending Policy” with the following conditions:

  • Sci-Port pass borrowers must be a BPL adult cardholder in good standing and present their library card or picture ID.
  • Passes are available on a first-come, first-served basis
  • Reservations are not allowed (placed on a hold list)
  • Non-renewable
  • Passes need to be returned to the issuing branch
  • One pass per household

  • Passes cannot be checked out back to back by same household within a three (3) day period
