Welcome to the all-new AADL.org! We're still working on a lot of features and cleaning up webpages, but the new site is here at last! Here are a few updates on where we're at, and what's to come this week and beyond.
Requests have been loaded, with NEW FEATURES!
With the new website, you can FREEZE or UNFREEZE your requests whenever you'd like, so long as they haven't yet hit the hold shelf. When a request is Frozen, you'll keep moving up the line, but the item won't be hit the hold shelf for you until you Unfreeze that request. Perfect for when too much stuff is coming in at once, or for when you go on vacation! We're getting ready to start filling requests early this week, so stay tuned for that!
Call or Text Your Library, just one number!
You can always call us at (734) 327-4200, but now you can text us at that number too with your questions! You'll get a response from library staff via text to your question, usually in just a few minutes!
New Bookable Rooms!
If you've used the Meeting Rooms at Westgate Branch, you know they're a hot commodity! So we've made two meeting rooms on the second floor of the downtown library bookable just like the Westgate Rooms. The Whiffletree Room and the Lamplighter Room can now be booked online for up to 2 hours, a minimum of one day in advance. You can book each of these rooms 12 times in a 365-day period with your library card. Get started booking these rooms right now!
We've slowly been growing our collection of local digital music for download, and now we're thrilled to launch a single place to find it: AAMPS, the Ann Arbor Music & Performance Server! With great music you can download right now, and much more to come in coming months, we hope you'll find something great to listen to everyday.
A New Year's Surprise!
As part of the new system, we've waived any outstanding late fees on your account for items you've returned. If you have overdue items that have been billed, those bills will be regenerated soon, unless, of course, you bring the stuff back first!
Many More Features to Come!
After the dust settles, there are a lot of great new features coming on AADL.org. Notifications by text, custom alerts and reminders, series holds and much more... once we get over this big leap we've just taken, we'll start making more useful features to save you time and effort every time you use the website.
Thanks for checking it out, and Thanks for Using your Library!
