Did you know the Ann Arbor District Library is governed by a 7-member Board of Trustees, elected at-large from the City of Ann Arbor and the parts of 7 townships that make up the Ann Arbor Library District? Well, you can meet them, see them in action, and tell them what you think about the Library at their monthly public meetings!
Monday, June 17th, 7 PM
Monday, July 15th, 7 PM
Come to the Downtown Library Multipurpose Room just before 7 PM to sign up to make a public comment. You'll find this code on the podium when your name is called to address the board!
If you miss the 7 PM spot on the agenda for public comment, there's another spot at the end of the meeting.
You can say whatever you'd like to your elected officials. Suggestions, feedback, appreciation, complaints, limericks; as a member of the public your 3 minutes of public comment to the board are open to you!
We hope to see you there!

To get this code do you need to make a comment and then stay for the whole meeting? If so, how long is the meeting? Thanks!
No, you don't have to stay for the whole meeting. Public comment is near the top of the agenda, so be sure to arrive by 7 PM so you don't miss it. After you give your comment and get the code you can go! However, if you're late and miss the first public comment time, there is another chance at the end of the meeting. Meetings usually end by 9 PM. Thanks for asking!
there no way im going up there stage fright
I had to face that...
Yeesh. Seems scary.
This is a good way to work on getting over stage fright. You can say just a little bit. If you want, you can write out what you want to say on a piece of paper.
You have another opportunity to do this. Give it a try. Encourage our Library Staff for their amazing hard work to craft a great library and a great Summer Game.
Is there realy only TWO chances to actually get the code or can you just go in there find the code and then just LEAVE?!?! .....
Yes, this code is available for making a public comment to the Library Board. They only meet twice during the summer. You need to make a comment to the board, in person, to get the code. Once you make your comment and get the code, you can absolutely leave if you'd like!
i went to the one on the 15th but I forgot the code, is there a way I can still get the code? I appreciate any help from library staff.
Oops, I meant the 17th. Just realized I'll be able to make the one on Monday, so I'm good. 😊
I would rather take an organic chemistry exam than get on a podium. Both terrify me but I make less of a fool of myself with the former.
