It's Throwback Thursday! The 1886 Library Bureau catalog identified this as the "most useful single device ever made for an active library."--the book truck. This library supply business was founded by Melvil Dewey.

New to this city and stopped in this week. All the staff were super friendly and very helpful! All the books are organized nicely and I love the board with upcoming events. I am beyond excited about t...he amazing Japanese cafe Numatzu Delights! The owner was so sweet and her teas and treats looked so yummy! We moved here beginning of June and I feel like this library is a really special part of Adrian. See More

The ADL is the true gem of Adrian! There are so many wonderful programs, book clubs, presentations, games, computers, etc. (I'm not sure if there are books, though. Tee hee!) So, not only are there a ...staggering amount of books, but all of the librarians are always kind and knowledgable, too. If, by chance, you do not find what you seek, you can always order it, too, via MelCat. A wonderful, wonderful place in our little town. See More

Amazing library with an awesome kids area!! Gave it 4 stars because they want to charge $65 per year if you do not live in Adrian to get a card!! I think that is a bit ridiculous and limiting!! What a...bout the people who work in Adrian but live in surrounding areas?? See More

The downstairs meeting room is a nice place for a Board of Realtors meeting!

Clean, helpful, well organized would give 5 stars but when I Google the hours it said they open at 9:30 and I had to wait 30 mins maybe someone could update it.
