YPSILANTI, Mich. – The Ypsilanti District Library may be closed but patrons are still able to sign up for library cards, renew expired cards and use the YDL online services.

For those living in the YDL service area (check out the service area map here), they can simply fill out an online application and send in a photo or scan of a valid photo ID.

If the applicant’s current address is in the service area but does not match the ID, they are asked to send in a photo of a piece of mail with their name and address.
