Library reading program offers free park passes

The Leland Township Library will again offer the Park & Read Program, which will include free passes for Michigan readers.

Park & Read allows Leland library-card holders the ability to “check-out” a one-day pass into any Michigan state park or recreation area in lieu of the resident daily motor vehicle permit. This is a $10 savings and free access to the more than 500 events taking place in local parks this summer. Over 400 libraries in the state are participating.

The pass is also valid at any of the 11 museums or historic sites within the Michigan Historical Museum system. For a list of all participating libraries go to http:// www.michigan.gov/gogetoutdoors.

Passes are valid for seven days from the date of issuance, and can be used for one day at any one of Michigan’s state parks. The program runs now through September 25.
