Park and Read Program - Michigan

Barbara Van Woerkom's post "Check out the Parks" in NPR's library blog "... as a matter of fact" alerted me to this clever initiative. Michigan public libraries and state parks are working together to promote reading and recreation this summer.

"Through the Park and Read Program, library cardholders will be able to check out a one-day pass to any Michigan state park or recreation area, bypassing the $6 motor vehicle fee. "

"In addition, hammocks will be available in many parks, courtesy of The Hammock Co., for participants to lounge in and enjoy the breezes while devouring the latest summer read."

Love the sign used to show reading while relaxing in a hammock!
