Support Your Library

Each contribution to the Ypsilanti District Library is an opportunity to enrich the life of someone in the Ypsilanti community.

Your contribution means:

  • Delighting a classroom of preschoolers when the Bookmobile arrives at their school.
  • Showing a new iPhone user how to share photos with her grandkids.
  • Ensuring an unemployed neighbor has access to online job postings.
  • Encouraging kids to keep reading and learning at the library over the summer.

You can now donate online via PayPal! You do not need a PayPal account to make a donation.
