There are several branches of Ann Arbor distrcit library. You can reserve DVD or book online, then ask them to have it sent to the branch you want. Very convenient. You can borrow the item for one week, no matter the item is new or not. Not like Blockbuster! They also purchase new DVDs and books very fast. I usually borrow DVDs of TV series from the library. And it's totally free. There is no limit how many items you can check out one time, as long as you can finish seeing within one week. The only drawback is you have to wait for a long time for some hot stuffs. But hey, it's free.

it has a great location, downtown ann arbor. It is not that big and it has reasonable collections. It is not that big, but sometime, size doesn't matter, right? so, you can stop by on your way to the bus station, get one or two books that you really want to read. They also have a good video collections, so you can just pick one or two old movie you liked.

Ann Arbor District libraries have numerous branches around Ann Arbor. You can return your books or DVDs to any branch. Sometimes if you return to University libraries by accident, the University library will help return them back. So, there is no worry about returning library properties. They have good collections of DVDs. You can reserve movie DVDs onlines and choose the branch where you want to pick up. Very convenient.

The Ann Arbor District Library has been awared National Library of the Year in the past and it's easy to see way. Their children's department is enormous and staffed exclusively by children's librarians. They sponsor great programs and displays. The library has several branches within the community as well as a bookmobile.

My review is based on the Mallett's Creek branch and the overall system as I have not actually been to the downtown branch. With the online catalog, I can request any title I want (book or video) and have it brought to my local branch. And with the recent upgrade, I can see where I am in line waiting for a video. I've attended several childrens' programs at the library and have thoroughly enjoyed them. I especially like the storytimes at the MC branch-- they're a great opportunity to introduce my child to new books and songs. the library holdings are extensive which makes it an even greater place since I can almost always find what I'm looking for.

AADL is a great library system and the one downtown is the main hub. The size and selection is impressive for a city the size of Ann Arbor. The childrens' area is especially nice with toys, lots of computers, and a generous amount of books and other activities to make a day at the library and joy. The computer system (ie., connection from home) is newly updated and fantastic. I use it all the time to request books and movies. You can also renew online saving yourself the time to call or stop in. There are also so many wonderful programs offered by the library, including summer reading programs for the whole family, story times that are amazing, craft times, continuing education for adults, etc. The only drawback to this particular location is the fact that you have to pay to park if you plan to stay longer than 10 minutes.

PROS: Size, Activities, Computer Situation
CONS: Paid Parking

I don't have much experience with city libraries, but I am very impressed with the Ann Arbor District Library (AADL).

This library system is so extensive, I've seen University of Michigan students rely completely on the AADL. (They do this because the AADL has parking, while the University library does not.) This says a lot about the AADL.

Definitely an impressive library!

PROS: Very large. Many branches.
CONS: Fines are not cheap
