ANN ARBOR, Mich. – The Ann Arbor District Library announced on Thursday that its downtown Ann Arbor branch would be closed between Friday, July 31, and Aug. 13.
The library branch is closing so that staff can quarantine for two weeks after a downtown library staff member tested positive for COVID-19, according to a statement released by AADL Director Josie Parker.
“Due to our contactless pickup and handling procedures, and based on direction from the County Health Department, there is no exposure risk to patrons who picked up items at the Downtown library,” Parker said in the statement.

The branch will be open on Tuesday, Aug. 4 as a polling place.
The four other AADL branches will remain open for contactless pickup for library items.
