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.

GloriaBy García, Paulina

Paulina Garcia plays Gloria, a divorced woman in her late 50's. Once full of vitality and love of life, now she lives alone and works in an office. In the evenings after work, she frequents Santiago's social dance clubs, where she can have a drink and a lively time dancing and meeting people, but still ends up singularly lonely. Everything changes when she meets Rodolpho (Sergio Hernandez) and they begin a passionate romance. Rodolpho is burdened by the constant attention needed by his ex-wife and his two grown daughters; his behavior gives Gloria pause as to his capacity for a lasting relationship. The couple's conflicted strong emotions keep things going as Gloria's hopeful outlook, energy and self-awareness never betray her. Chilean director Sebastian Lelio does not constrain his actors, nor allow them to become stereotypes of middle-aged singles. The relationship between Gloria and Rodolfo flows in fits and starts, feeling very real; you cannot help but love Gloria's spirited energy. In Spanish with English subtitles, rated R.
