ANN ARBOR, Mich. – On Tuesday at 9 a.m. the Pittsfield Branch of the Ann Arbor District Library will reopen after a seven-week renovation.
Although not an extensive renovation, the Pittsfield Branch has undergone quite a few changes. Three new bookable meeting rooms have been constructed, new computers and iPads have been installed and all of the materials have been relabelled and recategorized.
Although the meeting rooms are not yet available for bookings, patrons will be able to use them on a first-come, first-serve basis while the AADL waits to install glass walls and soundproofing materials. Two of these meeting rooms will be in the former newspaper section, while the large, class-sized meeting room will take over the former computer-area space. Once ready, these rooms will be bookable through the AADL website.
The most noticeable change is the reorganization of all of the materials. The Pittsfield Branch has moved away from the Dewey Decimal system and will be using the same categorization as the Westgate and Malletts Creek branches.

Along with the other changes, the large Bernoulli Ball exhibit has also been moved to the front of the library into the children’s section.
After it reopens, the branch will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and noon to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
The Pittsfield Branch is at 2359 Oak Valley Dr.
