Last summer, the Ann Arbor District Library released their “Space Needs and Facility Study for the Downtown Library.” It generated a bit of controversy and really made the citizens, the Library, the DDA, and the City think about what we all wanted for downtown.
Next week, nine architectural firms will be making presentations for the Downtown Library project. The presentations will be in the 4th Floor Board Room and are free and open to the public. (Schedule and web links after the jump.)

As Library Director Josie Parker said on the AADL web site:
The opportunity to address the Library’s need to create an accessible and flexible space Downtown that will adjust to new uses over the next several decades is very exciting. The opportunity to do this in collaboration with the DDA and the City of AA, in terms of the development of the “library lot”, is a very positive step toward a progressive urban design plan for the Fifth Avenue/William street area. We appreciate the interest and support we are receiving from the DDA and the Ann Arbor City Council.
