AADL in the New York Times

This week, The Ann Arbor District Library and our tools collection were featured in the New York Times in an article about non-traditional library collections. Several libraries around the country, including AADL, are profiled, each with a unique collection to share. The article can be read on the New York Times website or on page A12 of the Tuesday, September 15 edition of the Times.

If you’d like to check out a tool, from a Spinning Wheel to a Telescope, or a Giant Checkers Set and a Thermal Camera, visit!


Delighted to see this! The AADL collection is indeed interesting, and it was nice to read about the variety of collections across libraries.

Are all of these, including the musical instruments, now housed exclusively at the downtown library? Further, could you please clarify whether we can place a hold on these to have them sent to the branches?
