If you’re looking to change up your local library routine (and maybe run some errands), check out Ann Arbor District Library’s Westgate Branch.

The innovative library is located in a strip mall next to a TJMaxx and The Little Seedling children’s boutique, Zingerman’s Roadhouse is in the parkinglot and a full-service Sweetwater Coffee shop inside. You’ll never think about libraries the same once you visit the Westgate Branch.

The Children’s Department is a perfect meet up space for parents. With a round seating archway, you can grab a coffee beforing sitting to chat while the kids play with toys, keep busy with the light wall, find new games on the tablet or cozy up with books in the wall cubes. The creative wall feature is a show stopper and a ‘hideaway’ sure to entertain your kids for even longer than you need.
