The Downtown Ann Arbor Library has been through two major expansions since opening its doors in 1957. In 2007 growing needs prompted the library authority to hire a consultant to assess the 20 year feasibility of the existing facilities. Ten focus groups and over 100 users worked toward determining future library needs. The results of the study prompted the hiring of Luckenbach/Ziegelman Architects to undertake the future construction/expansion project. In combination with the library project, the Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority proposed a plan to replace the parking lot on the north side of the Library with an underground parking garage. Working together, both authorities developed a joint public survey to help guide future plans.
Now the Ann Arbor Public is invited to discuss future plans for the Library. There are two more sessions (held in the downtown library’s multi-purpose room):
Wednesday, 10am – Noon
Sunday (June 8), 3pm – 5pm
The architects have developed two programs for the library – a renovated and expanded library as well as a new downtown library. Come help shape the future of your Downtown Ann Arbor Library!
