The "Michigan Activity Pass presented by The Library Network" program is a partnership between Michigan's nearly 400 public libraries and 60 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 Monroe to Mackinaw City to Marquette, and all points in between.
Library users with a valid library card from one of Michigan's nearly 400 public libraries can print a pass, either from home or at the library, to any of the nearly 60 participating institutions. Visit the Michigan Activity Pass website for details.
Some organizations offer complimentary or reduced price admissions; others offer discounts in their gift shop or other exclusive offers for Michigan Activity Pass holders only. Each Michigan Activity Pass expires within one week from the date it is printed.
MAP will renew on May 24, 2015 with over 350 attractions statewide, including all of the state parks, rec areas, forest campgrounds and historic sites that formerly were part of the Park and Read program, which has been merged into MAP. The passes for the state parks will be available on May 24th! A printable MAP booklet is available while you wait.
For anyone wanting to get fit this summer, but find their budget is the leanest part of their lifestyle, a quick trip to one of our 13 libraries for a free pass to the MI Big Green Gym is the first step to getting started.

Passes are valid until Sept. 30 and are good for one free day into any state park or recreation area, or at the KLR Splashpad in Oxford Township, a universally accessible facility that is a hit with kids of all ages and abilities.
