For anyone wanting to get fit this summer, but find their budget is the leanest part of their lifestyle, a quick trip to Royal Oak Public Library for a free pass into MI Big Green Gym is the first step to getting started.
MI Big Green Gym is a partnership with Michigan Recreation and Park Association, the Department of Natural Resources, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. It is designed to show just how easy it is to get out, get active and get healthier. Lucky for Michigan residents, MI Big Green Gym is as close as their nearest state park or community recreation center – and is now available for free thanks to more than 400 community libraries participating in the program, including ROPL.
The DNR started the Park & Read program in 2010 as a way to provide free passes to state parks. Now, with support from Blue Cross, the program has been rebranded to promote outdoor fitness and provides free one-day passes into any state park, state forest campground or pathway, as well as includes family-friendly destinations at select community recreation facilities.
Passes allow one vehicle into a state park for one day, and with many parks offering free, into-to programs with all the gear and expertise provided through the Rec 101 program, that one day can lead to lifelong memories.
Passes are valid for seven days from check-out and can be used for day-use only, not for use at prearranged/ multiple person private gatherings, or overnight camping. The program is available May, 16 2014 through September 30, 2014 for the summer season.

The Michigan Activity Pass program is designed to enhance the learning experience for people of all ages by providing reduced cost or complimentary access to arts and cultural organizations across the state of Michigan. Royal Oak Public Library cardholders may get free or discounted admission to almost 100 cultural attractions throughout Michigan.
Administered by the Library of Michigan in partnership with Michigan's libraries of all types, the Michigan eLibrary provides all Michigan residents with an easy-to-use interlibrary loan system to allow Michigan residents to borrow books and other library materials for free from participating Michigan libraries.
