Opened in March 2006, the Pittsfield Branch was designed to accommodate the needs of a library for a growing neighborhood while protecting the wetland on which it sits. The Pittsfield Branch is located on 5.74 acres of land on Oak Valley Drive in Pittsfield Township. It is a one-story building of approximately 14,600 square feet and is adjacent to the Ann Arbor Ice Cube arena. The Branch serves as a community-based learning center that delivers superior customer service, primarily to the residents of the southwest quadrant of Ann Arbor and Pittsfield Township. The building and the surrounding landscape capitalize on environmental principles, thereby allowing the overall project to operate more in harmony with the ecosystem and the community in which it serves. Read more about the Pittsfield Branch or visit our image gallery to see photos and drawings of the building.
The Branch houses an updated collection, consisting of traditional materials, such as books, magazines, and DVDs. Electronic resources include 28 public computer terminals, 18 of which are located in an Electronic Training classroom, and wireless internet access throughout the building. Along with the more traditional picture and chapter books, the Pittsfield Youth and Young Adult section features a sizable collection of Teen graphic novels, youth magazines and a group of Youth computer stations.
While its primary mission is to deliver traditional library services, the Branch also serves as a true community center. This facility includes a quiet and comfortable reading area complete with fireplace that houses the branch's magazines and newspapers. Pittsfield also features a vending area with seating for 24 people, a program room for groups of up to 90 people, three study and tutor rooms, a children's play area, and exhibit space for local artists and organizations. For more information about how to rent the program room please visit the Room Rental Page.
