As economic times cause us all to tighten our belts and close up our wallets, many families are turning to the idea of a "staycation" rather than a traditional vacation. But how do you make sure you have a fun, relaxing and fulfilling staycation at home? The Great American Staycation will show you how staying at home can be one of the best vacations of all. Whether it's a romantic staycation for a couple or one for a family with kids, this book will help you out with plenty of top tips.
Just in time for summer vacation, Park & Read passes have arrived at the library. A joint venture of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Macy's, the Hammock Company, and the Library of Michigan, the Park & Read program provides a free one-day vehicle permit to any Michigan State Park & Recreation Area - and at many parks, a free hammock to use for the day. Like the popular Museum Adventure Pass program, the passes are "checked out" for seven days; you pick the day you want to use it. So come in for a pass & a book to read while lolling in that hammock.
