YDL Photo Gallery

YDL event attendees may be photographed for use on our website and in printed publicity. If you attend an event at YDL and do not wish to have your photo taken, please speak with a staff member.


YDL hosts events to suit every age group and interest. From gardening workshops to storytimes, from cooking contests to our award-winning Songwriting Festival, there’s so much to check out. Get a taste for some of these events here.

Language of Art

We believe that original art holds a special place in public libraries. Not only does it enhance the ambiance but it is also an important ingredient of the full experience when visiting YDL.

YDL Locations

YDL offers three buildings and one bookmobile. Our Whittaker Road location, located on the south side of Ypsilanti, opened in 2002. Our Michigan Avenue location, acquired in 1963, underwent renovations in 2002 and reopened in 2003. Our Superior location opened in 2007. We received our bookmobile, the Navigator, in January 2008.
