Celebrate a Birthday With Us!
Saturday, January 21, 2012
Everyone is invited to celebrate YDL-Whittaker’s 10th birthday on Friday, January 27 from 3-5 pm in the front lobby. On Sunday, January 27, 2002, the Whittaker Road facility at 5577 Whittaker Road opened its doors to over 3,000 visitors who praised its uniqueness, size, resources, and beauty. The Ypsilanti District Library is sharing cake to mark this significant milestone!
Please stop by to reminisce with us as we take a walk down memory lane and talk about all that has happened in the last 10 years. Due to the generous support of our voters, money was made available in a May 1998 election to build YDL-Whittaker. Groundbreaking took place in 2000. After the grand opening, people began using their library. In 2002, YDL-Whittaker checked out 371,103 items. Contrast that to 2011, where 902,518 items were checked out! We welcome the opportunity to show you all the exciting new things that have been added since that landmark day 10 years ago. Join us!
