The “Michigan Activity Pass presented by The Library Network” will renew for a second year, beginning May 24, 2014. This project is supported in part by the Library of Michigan with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The Michigan Activity Pass program is a partnership between Michigan’s nearly 400 public libraries and 100+ arts and cultural organizations. The program is designed to enhance the learning experience for people of all ages through books and other library materials, and to provide reduced cost or complimentary access to arts and cultural organizations across the state of Michigan, from St. Joseph to Saline to Saginaw to Sault Ste. Marie to South Range, and all points in between. Some of the participating cultural partners include the Gilmore Car Museum, the Michigan Science Center, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, and many others.
Beginning May 24, library users with a valid library card can print a pass, either from home or at the Library, to one of the participating cultural institutions at the http://michiganactivitypass.info website. Some cultural partners offer complimentary or reduced price admission; others, discounts in their gift shop or other exclusive offers for MAP pass holders only. Each Michigan Activity Pass expires one week from the date it is printed. We will have five passes available per week for each of the participating organizations.
