Michigan Activity Pass

Michigan Activity Pass!

The Michigan Activity Pass (MAP) presented by The Library Network (TLN) is a statewide partnership that offers enhanced access to recreational, arts, and cultural organizations in Michigan.

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 over 100 participating institutions, including state parks and state recreation areas.. 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.

Tomorrow-land : the 1964-65 World's Fair and the transformation of AmericaBy Tirella, Joseph

*Tomorrow-Land: The 1964-65 World’s Fair and the Transformation of America

Journalist Joseph Tirella brings a fresh perspective to the historic events of the Sixties by using the 1964 New York World’s Fair, with all its problems and controversies, as exemplary of America’s social upheaval in general. Civil rights organizations, artists, musicians, countries building pavilions, politicians, New York urban visionaries all in a tangle with the dramatic backdrop of such dichotomies as Bob Dylan vs The Beatles, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr, riots in Harlem Vietnam War protesters, plus notables such as Ken Kesey, Andy Warhol, Walt Disney, all of whom had their part in the World’s Fair and the wider culture. The man behind the fair was the powerful and power-hungry Robert Moses, whose headstrong opinions constantly clashed with popular cultural changes. A well-researched, absorbing read about one of America's most interesting decades.
