Originally opened in 1977, the Westgate Branch re-opened in September 2016, having nearly quadrupled in size to its current 21,000 square feet. The Westgate Branch serves as a convenient learning center that delivers superior customer service, primarily to the residents of the northwest quadrant of Ann Arbor. The branch is in the well located and easily accessible Westgate Shopping Center off of Jackson Avenue.
The Branch houses an updated collection, consisting of traditional materials, such as books, BOCDs, and DVDs, now organized by user-friendly subject headings. Electronic resources include 13 public computer terminals, wireless internet access, and abundant electrical outlets throughout the building. Along with the more traditional picture and chapter books, the Westgate Kids section features a sizable collection of kids magazines, educational toys, a group of iPad gaming stations, and a giant honeycomb wall!
While its primary mission is to deliver traditional library services, the Branch also serves as a true community center. In addition to the quiet and comfortable reading area complete with fireplace similar to other AADL branches, Westgate features both tables and comfortable seating throughout the building. Many tables are found near Sweetwaters Cafe, the first full-service cafe located within an AADL location. In addition to open seating, the branch has four first-come, first-served study rooms. Two meeting rooms are also available and reservable by members of the public. The West Side Room is used for library programs and will be available for rental beginning in January 2017.
