An unusual program is the Museum Adventure Pass. Any person with a valid library card can obtain access to several different participating art and cultural organizations. What a great idea, especially for tweens and teenagers, who often wish they could go to things happening in the city, but don't have a lot of money. There are also many chances to be involved in volunteer activities including the Diabetes Association who actually use the phrase, Get Involved, Get Active as their motto. In Royal Oak, this catchphrase pretty much describes the pulse of the whole city, with families, parents, and children participating in walks and runs to raise money for several different charities. The Orson Starr Museum is a great place for history buffs in the family to learn a little more about the city's history.1
