The Ann Arbor District Library has been named a five star library for the 10th year in a row in Library Journal’s annual rating of public libraries nationwide. The AADL is one of just 13 public libraries in the country to earn LJ's five star designation in each of the last 10 years.
Three other Michigan libraries received star ratings this year. Richland Community Library was named a Four Star library within its category, West Bloomfield Township Public Library received four stars, and Genesee District Library received three stars. Congratulations to our fellow Michigan libraries!

AADL and the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority (TheRide) are partnering this summer to provide Free Ride Saturdays during the AADL Summer Game!
Every Saturday from June 17 - August 26, library cardholders can ride any of TheRide local fixed-route buses for free. All you need to do is show the driver your library card when boarding the bus!
While riding, look for the AADL Summer Game code sign inside the bus and win 1,000 points to trade in for awesome Summer Game Shop prizes. Each bus has the same code inside the bus, so it's easy to find! When you see it, text the code to 4AADL (42235) or visit play.aadl.org to enter the code and get 1,000 points.
TheRide and AADL have created fun ways to get even more Summer Game prizes:
• Find the code featured on the outside of several buses for 500 points.
• Find the code hidden on TheRide.org on the MyAlerts Service page (which you can get to by clicking on "All Alerts" directly from the homepage) for 500 points.
Find all the codes to earn the Ride Master Badge and a 500 point bonus!

Due to a fiber problem, Pittsfield Branch is currently without Internet connection. This affects public computers, wifi, and catalog searching at Pittsfield Branch. Staff can still assist with checkouts that will be processed later once connectivity is restored. Thanks for your patience, and stay tuned!
