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 70+ participating cultural institutions at the http://michiganactivitypass.info website. Some cultural partners offer complimentary or reduced price admissions; 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.  
A brochure with all the participants listed is available here!

Between potholes, snow drifts, black ice, and road salt our vehicles take quite a beating. Some may even need repair or body work or a little maintenance.  Maybe we’d like to tackle the job ourselves and need step by step instructions, illustrations, and specifications.  Or, we don’t feel qualified to handle the tasks ourselves but want to be well-informed when hiring a professional and have an idea of what’s involved.  Vehicle enthusiasts have long used print versions of Chilton Repair Manuals and fortunately, electronic versions of hundreds of these manuals are available in the MeL database Chilton Library.   Labor estimating, bulletins/recalls, maintenance, and repair are included as are wiring and vacuum diagrams, close-up photographs, and more.  Start out by selecting the year, make and model to see what is available for your vehicle.  Model years 1940 (select makes) to the present, trucks, SUVs, imports and domestic, are all included. Michigan residents or Michigan library access only.
