Use your library card to get a free or reduced cost pass for over 60 arts and cultural organizations across the state! The Michigan Activity Pass (MAP) is the product of a partnership between Michigan's nearly 400 public libraries and 60 arts and cultural organizations across the state of Michigan. Use your valid library card to reserve and print a pass, either from home or at the library. Take that pass with you to the cultural attractions, and present it to staff. That's all there is to it!
Each MAP pass expires within one week from the date it is printed. Limit one pass per library card. Each library will have five passes available per week for each of the participating organizations.
