Welcome to the Friends of the Ann Arbor District Library! 


The Friends of the Ann Arbor District Library is an organization which strives to be a valuable resource to our community by providing access to gently used books and other items at very low prices. Not only does this allow us to donate money to the Ann Arbor District Library for special programming, it gives community members the opportunity to build personal libraries that educate and inspire them, and teaches children the important role books can play in their lives.
