The Contra Costa County Library is celebrating Discover & Go Month this October. Visit your local branch and enjoy the Library’s ongoing partnership with Bay Area museums and cultural venues. Enter drawings for some great prizes and help give back to the community at the same time.

Once again, the Contra Costa County Library is partnering with the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano. For every donation of nonperishable food items patrons bring to a participating branch, they can enter to win prizes including premium awards for some of the Bay Area’s most popular attractions. They can also enter an easy on-line contest, “Why I Love Discover & Go”. In addition, there will be two cartooning classes for kids hosted by Discover & Go favorite, the Charles M. Schulz Museum. Classes will be held Saturday, October 7 at 11:15am at the Pittsburg Library, and at 1:30 p.m. at the El Cerrito Library. There will also be pop-up storytimes at the Cobra Car Museum in Martinez on Sunday, October 15 at 10:30 and 11:15 am.

“Discover & Go is a great way to introduce your friends and family to some of the unique and culturally diverse museums and venues in the Bay Area,” said Contra Costa County Librarian Melinda Cervantes. “Since 2011, we have made nearly one million cultural visits possible for families with library cards.”

Discover & Go is a nationally recognized partnership between libraries and museums offering free and low-cost passes for world-class cultural venues to library cardholders from every community and background.

Library card holders age 16 and up can go online to check out free passes all year long.
