Your gift matters to YDL! Few organizations provide the broad array of resources and services found here at YDL–from early literacy to arts programming to internet access–all available free of charge.  Donations to the library help fulfill our mission “to enrich life, stimulate intellectual curiosity, foster literacy, and encourage an informed citizenry" in the Ypsilanti area.
