Friends of the Library

YDL's Friends of the Library group supports YDL through fundraising and other volunteer activities. The Friends Shop, which is located on the first floor at YDL-Whittaker, stocks new and gently used books. The Friends group also stocks a self-service Book Nook at YDL-Michigan with a small selection of new and gently used books. If you have questions or are interested in volunteering in the Friends Shop, please email us.
