We are happy to announce a date for our Groundbreaking celebration: April 7 at 3:30pm. The event is open to all and will be livestreamed, thanks to a sponsorship from Bank of Ann Arbor. The event will include fun entertainment in addition to remarks from former State Representative David Rutledge, Superior Township Supervisor Ken Schwartz, YDL Board President Jean Winborn, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell, Library Director Lisa Hoenig, and 2-3 young patrons from the neighborhood. Learn more about the event and RSVP here.
Work continues on financial and legal aspects of the project. Superior Township has resolved to gift the parcel of land to the Library. The Library and Superior Township are in the process of working out the legal details. We will soon have everything ready to finalize the property transfer. The Library’s Board of Trustees has earmarked an additional $1.3 million for the project, bringing the total to $3.5M. An environmental assessment of the site is underway.
This activity is supported in part by a gift from Bank of Ann Arbor.
If you have questions or feedback about the new library, please contact Library Director Lisa Hoenig at 734-879-1300 or firstname.lastname@example.org
