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.

The Friends Book Shop remains closed while the library is closed. The library is scheduled to reopen on Monday, July 12th. At that time, all Friends Shelves at the branches will be stocked and ready to be shopped! The Friends Book Shop located on the first floor of the downtown library is tentatively scheduled to reopen on Tuesday, July 27th. We will begin accepting donations from the general public sometime near the end of August. Please visit this page for updates.




In the meantime, you can still find a great selection from our inventory in our online shop! Our online book shop is open to the public and does not require membership or login to shop.
