Friends of the Library

YDL's Friends of the Library group supports YDL through fundraising and other volunteer activities. The Friends Shop, which is located on the first floor at YDL-Whittaker, stocks new and gently used books. The Friends group also stocks a self-service Book Nook at YDL-Michigan with a small selection of new and gently used books. If you have questions or are interested in volunteering in the Friends Shop, please email us.

Mission of Friends of the Ypsilanti District Library:

  • Provide financial and other assistance for the improvement of library services
  • Stimulate community interest in the library
  • Work for the expansion and improvement of library facilities

The group's meetings are held at 7 pm on the fourth Monday of every month at the YDL-Whittaker Board Room, Second Floor. Our Annual Meeting is also held in the YDL-Whittaker Board Room, Second Floor.
