Because of the elevator repairs at the Downtown Library, the Book Shop is now closed during July and August.

However, the Library has graciously loaned us some space on the first floor of the Downtown Library for a mini-book shop! All books are $2 and can be purchased at the checkout counter during regular library hours. AADL

THANK YOU to all our customers for buying with FAADL to support the programs of the AADL!

Come shop at the Friends Book Shop to get great deals and help recycle books and other media. PLUS you will be supporting the Ann Arbor District Library programs such as Summer Reading and bus transportation for 2nd Grade Visits to the library by students from public and private schools all over Ann Arbor.

We offer Gift Certificates. Stop into the Shop or send us a check and we will mail you a certificate.

The Friends Book Shop is celebrating its 34th anniversary this year! Since 1980 our volunteers, working at least 300,000 hours, have recycled over 2.5 million books and earned more than
$2 million for special programs at the Ann Arbor District Library (AADL).


Your donations of books, CDs, and DVDs are deductible on your Federal Income tax return, and can be dropped off at the Downtown Library on the corner of Fifth and William. Just enter off William Street into the AADL staff parking lot and ring the bell at the rear entrance. Someone will let you in and give you a tax receipt and a coupon for a free book in our Book Shop.

Please see our "How To Donate Books" page for further details.
