Orion Township Public Library to Offer Michigan Activity Pass

Pass aims to boost attendance at cultural organizations around Michigan.

Orion Township Public Library to Offer Michigan Activity Pass

Orion Township Public Library patrons will have access to the Michigan Activity Pass (MAP) program, presented by The Library Network, beginning on May 24, 2013 through May 23, 2014.  Library users with a valid library card can print a pass, either from home or at the library, to one of the nearly 60 participating institutions at the michiganactivitypass.info website, which will go live on May 24.

The MAP 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.

"This new MAP program replaces the Museum Adventure Pass program that has been available in previous years and expands to even more arts and cultural organizations in our state,” said Karen Knox, director. “The Orion Township Public Library is proud to participate in this program to provide our residents with free or discounted access to these valuable organizations."

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 MAP expires within one week from the date it is printed.  Each library will have five passes for each of the participating organizations available.
