The Orion Library will be taking part in this year’s Michigan Libraries for Life campaign with the goal of educating patrons about organ, tissue, and eye donation and to encourage them to join the Michigan Organ Donor Registry.
More than 95% of Americans support organ, tissue, and eye donation but in Michigan, only 39% of adults have joined the state’s donor registry, far lower than the 45% average nationwide. Signing up is easy. You can do so online, by visiting any Secretary of State branch office or by calling Gift of Life at 800-482-4881. Registering only takes about 30 seconds.
