City of Memphis outdoor pools to open Saturday

poolside 600For those eagerly awaiting the City of Memphis summer swim season, it’s time to jump in – with caution, of course.
 
Outdoor pools open Saturday (June 7th), with the season extending through July 26th. Hours of operation will be Tuesday through Saturday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
 
Toni Holmon-Turner, public affairs manager for Parks and Neighborhoods, says taking a dip in a City of Memphis pool has gotten easier this year. 
 
 
“City Access Cards, which can be obtained at any City of Memphis Library, are now being used in lieu of Pool Cards,” said Holmon-Turner. “These cards are free and can also be used as library cards to check out books. In order to attend a City of Memphis pool, a City Access Card must be obtained.”
 
City Access Cards will be issued from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at all Memphis Public Library Branches. The Benjamin
L. Hooks Central Library will issue cards from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday; 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays.
 
If you have a previously issued City of Memphis Parks and Neighborhoods pool identification card, you do not have to register again.
 
You must register for a City Access Card if:
 
• You desire to attend a City of Memphis Aquatic Facility;
• You have misplaced your previously issued pool card (replacement fee $1);
• You have turned 13 since your previous pool card was issued;
• You have turned 18 since your previous pool card was issued. All adults will receive a City of Memphis Library Passport Card, which allows access to all City of Memphis pools;
• You have a general, non-photo ID library card but desire to attend a City of Memphis aquatic facility.
 
FOR REGISTRATION
 
All minors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at registration and provide valid identification in the form of a state of official hospital/birth certificate; official health department or physician’s shot record or passport with the minor’s birth date listed. Parent or guardian’s proof of residency is also required.
 
Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult at all City of Memphis pools; therefore, parent/ guardian accompanying children 12 and under must also receive a Library Passport Card.
 
Adults 18 and older will need to bring valid drivers license or other picture identification, in addition to proof of residency to receive a Library Card.
 
 
PROOF OF RESIDENCY: Two current original documents (dated within the last 90 days) with applicant’s name (or the name of the spouse with proof of relationship) and current city of Memphis principal address as listed on your application. Acceptable forms of proof of residency are: utility bill, landline telephone bill, bank statement, mortgage/rental agreement, TN voter’s registration card or property tax bill.
