WHO ARE THE FRIENDS?
The Friends of the Ann Arbor District Library are a committed group of volunteers who operate the Friends Book Shop in the lower level of the Downtown Ann Arbor District Library.
TO HELP US SUPPORT CHILDREN’S PROGRAMMING AT THE LIBRARY, WE NEED:
- Volunteers who staff the Book Shop, serve on the Board and sort donations.
- Donations of books, CDs and DVDs
- Members who provide ongoing and sustaining support to the Friends and the Book Shop.
The Friends Book Shop is now on the first floor of the Downtown Library, and is open every day, except Monday. The hours are listed in the green side bar, or bottom bar.
HOW TO CHOOSE A BOOK:
32 “Expert” Reviewers give the low-down on how to choose a good book by answering 5 simple questions. Babies & Books: a tongue-in-cheek look at a serious issue. Click here for a video about babies and books. It shows the importance of physical interactions with books via a number of candid photos by parents and caregivers of young children. This project was developed by Shutta Crum, award winning author of children’s books, who also happens to be one of our volunteers. It is not a commercial venture, and does not advertise Shutta’s books.
