Michigan Activity Pass

Now Available: Michigan Activity Pass!

The Michigan Activity Pass (MAP) presented by The Library Network (TLN) debuted May 24! This statewide partnership offers enhanced access to arts and cultural organizations in Michigan.

The program is scheduled to run through May 23, 2014, with plans to continue a second year.

MAP is an online program. 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. Find out what discoveries await you by going to: http://michiganactivitypass.info. 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 within one week from the date it is printed. Each library will have five passes for each of the participating organizations available.

Passes are for one-time use and are not transferable.  The institution will collect the pass when you visit.  Special exhibits may not be covered, and other exclusions may apply.

Each library has access to five passes per week, per participating cultural partner. Passes will be available for checkout by library patrons on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Please note that on account the pass is good for seven days from the day of checkout, unless a cultural partner is closed or has otherwise specified a "blackout day" when a pass may not be used. Only one MAP pass is available per library card.
