River Rapids Library partners to offer free passes to cultural attractions
CHESANING – For the second year, River Rapids District Library is participating in the Michigan Activity Pass program, which begins on May 24.
The program allows residents with a library card to obtain discounted or free passes to see attractions and museums throughout the state. The Michigan Activity Pass program is a partnership between Michigan’s nearly 400 public libraries and more than 70 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 St. Joseph to Saline to Saginaw to Sault Ste. Marie to South Range and beyond.
Some of the participating cultural partners include the Gilmore Car Museum, the Michigan Science Center, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, and many others. There are at least 32 new venues participating this year.
Beginning May 24, 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 participating cultural institutions at the http://michiganactivitypass. info website.
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 one week from the date it is printed.
Each library will have five passes available per week for each of the participating organizations.
For more information on the program, call River Rapids District Library at (989) 845- 3211.
