The Library Network has announced 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 presented by The Library Network” program is a partnership between Michigan’s nearly 400 public libraries and 70+ 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.
“Public library patrons and our cultural partners were so pleased with the overwhelming reception afforded to the Michigan Activity Pass program during its first year, that renewal for a second year was a no-brainer,” said Jim Flury, Technical Services Manager and Michigan Activity Pass administrator at The Library Network in Novi. “That so many of our cultural partners from the first year of the program decided to sign on for a second year, speaks to the success the program has enjoyed,” Flury said.
Beginning May 24, “Michigan Activity Pass presented by The Library Network” will be
available at Manchester District Library. 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.
Library users with a valid Manchester District Library card can print a pass, either at home or at the library, to one of the 70+ participating cultural institutions listed at the Michigan Activity Pass 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.
Manchester District Library will have five passes available per week for each of the participating organizations.
This is a great resource for planning summer activities. We hope all of our patrons will have the opportunity to enjoy some the excellent opportunities available through this program.
