***UPDATE:*** YDL-Michigan will reopen May 9 to the public. However, the book drop and Library Plaza will remain closed due to ongoing construction outside. There will also be more limited parking in the library parking lot.
YDL-Michigan will be closed 4/15/22-5/8/22 for water remediation work. The project entails waterproofing parts of the historic building’s foundation, facade, and basement interior. For everyone’s safety, Library Plaza and the downtown book return will also be closed during construction. We will not offer curbside at YDL-Michigan during the closure.
Do I need to return my materials to YDL-Michigan during the construction project?
No. The dropbox will be closed for patron safety. However, no late fees will accrue during that time. You can keep your materials at home, or return them at another YDL location if you prefer.
What if I had holds requested?
If you have a hold that you anticipated would become available during the anticipated 2-week closure, you can request that your holds be switched to another YDL location. YDL-Whittaker is still open for full-service hours, the Bookmobile is back on the road, and YDL-Superior is still operating locker pickup. If you don’t request a change in location, you can rest assured that your holds will be available to pick up at YDL-Michigan when it reopens.
Is curbside still available?
Curbside will not be available at YDL-Michigan during the closure, due to construction vehicles in the parking lot. However, you can still use curbside pickup at YDL-Whittaker, or the YDL-Superior lockers.
What if there was an event at YDL-Michigan I had planned to attend?
Most of the events scheduled during that period are moving to YDL-Whittaker. You can check our events page or call 734-482-4110 to check for any cancellations.
How can I stay updated about when YDL-Michigan is open again?
We anticipate closing for several weeks (reopening May 9), but please monitor our social media feeds for updates:
