cultural passCultural Pass is not a required part of Summer Reading Club.

In order to obtain a Cultural Pass, the person must register for the library's Summer Reading Club. If registering online for SRC, you must come to the library to pick up the Cultural Pass booklet which is needed to participate in the Cultural Pass activities.

The 2024 Cultural Pass is your passport to creativity! Cultural Pass offers young people ages 0-21 and their families in the Greater Louisville area access to participate in arts and cultural activities provided by over 50 venues, free of charge, from June 1 - August 4, 2024.

The Cultural Pass is designed to inspire, explore, and discover new experiences in our Greater Louisville community!

The programming made accessible through Cultural Pass promotes creativity, inspiration, educational opportunities, and lifelong learning about where we come from (our heritage), who we are (our culture), and how we express both of those things (art).

We acknowledge that some of the experiences available through Cultural Pass address difficult topics. In determining if your family would like to engage with a particular Cultural Pass experience, we encourage you to reach out to the venue directly to learn more about their content and programming.
