We’re big fans of this program – because it encourages our patrons to venture all across the state to special arts/cultural institutions you might not normally plan on visiting…

Ferndale Library patrons are, once again, being offered the chance for reduced-cost or complimentary access to arts and cultural organizations across the state of Michigan with the “Michigan Activity Pass,” presented by the Library Network (supported by the Library of Michigan with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences IMLS).
MAP is a partnership between Michigan’s nearly 400 public libraries and more than 70 arts/cultural organizations. The program was very well received last year. People drove all across the state, according to Jim Flury, TLN Technical Services Manager and MAP Administrator.
Some cultural/arts partners include: The Detroit Institute of Arts, the Gilmore Car Museum, The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum and many others.
How the Program Works
Beginning May 24, library users with a valid library card from any one of Michigan’s nearly 400 public
libraries can print a pass, either from home or at the library, to one of the 70+ 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.
