There’s a lot more to do at the Ann Arbor Library than just rent books
If you’re looking for something entertaining to do, the library may not be the first thing that comes to mind, but you may want to give that another thought. That’s because libraries are not what they used to be, there are all kinds of things to check out and enjoy, beyond the great books.

Interactive map shows COVID risk by event size in each Michigan county
Researchers at Georgia Tech released a the “COVID-19 Risk Assessment Planning Tool,” a peer-reviewed resource that tells you the risk of being around someone with COVID-19, by the event size, in each U.S. county, in real-time. According to the data, as of Nov. 13, at an event with 10 people, the risk of a person present with COVID-19 is 19% in Wayne County, 30% in Macomb County and 24% in Oakland County. If that event is with 25 people, the risk increases to 41% in Wayne County, 59% in Macomb County and 37% in Oakland County. At an event with 100 people, risk levels in pretty much every Michigan county surpasses 80%, including some at 99%, like Kent and Calhoun counties. New COVID-19 cases and deaths continue to rise in Michigan.
