Library Board Votes To Suspend Downtown Library Project

This morning the Board of the Ann Arbor District Library voted unanimously to suspend work on the project to renovate, or tear down and rebuild, the Downtown Library at 5th and Division.

The Library's 2004-2010 Strategic Plan called for this project, but with more bad economic news expected for Michigan, Board members agreed that continuing this project now would be inappropriate. The AADL will instead focus its attention on maintaining the Downtown Library.

We will embark on the maintenance, repairs, and renovations necessary to continue to provide outstanding library service to our community at our Downtown location, as well as from our four branch locations.
