When six Ypsilanti women gathered in 1868 to start a lending library, they could scarcely have imagined the library that stands today. Every week an average of 7400 people visit the library, checking out more than 15000 items and attending dozens of free classes.
In 2018, celebrate YDL's legacy and dream of what the next 150 years might bring.
The Gala promises to be a memorable night featuring delicious food from local vendors, great music, a cash bar, and a silent auction. The keynote speaker and library patrons will share a few of the stories that start at the library, from quiet moments to life-changing discoveries.
