Have you tried out MAP, yet?
The Michigan Activity Pass (…formerly known as the Michigan Adventure Pass) encourages our patrons to venture all across the state of Michigan to special arts/cultural institutions you might not have otherwise planned on visiting.
Ferndale Library patrons are 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 theLibrary Network (supported by the Library of Michigan with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences IMLS).
Some cultural/arts partners include: The Detroit Institute of Arts, the Gilmore Car Museum, The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum and many others, including the Hidden Lake Gardens park near MSU.
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 MAP website.
Each Michigan Activity Pass expires one week from the date it is printed.
THE GOOD NEWS IS
….that this excellent and engaging program from TLN is only gaining in popularity. So you can certainly expect an opportunity to use it throughout the upcoming seasons.
The MAP program has, in its seven years of life, expanded considerably, from 30 museum partners featured in public libraries in six counties (Livingston, Macomb, Oakland, St. Clair, Washtenaw, Wayne) to a robust statewide program featuring 112 partner venues for nearly 400 libraries in 639 participating library buildings covering each of Michigan’s 83 counties.
Not to mention that our patrons always enthusiastically inquire about it, each month. It’s amazing how many doors can be opened to you by your Public Library!
