AHPL Now Offering Curbside Pickup Service!
We were excited to hear that Governor Whitmer announced that public libraries may begin the process of opening safely, starting June 8th. The AHPL, however, is still preparing to make your library a safe place to visit, and the building will remain closed until further notice. Staff will be returning to work and will receive training and the personal protective equipment necessary to keep themselves, other staff, and the public safe. In the interim, the AHPL will offer Curbside Pickup Service starting Monday, June 15th, so our Auburn Hills patrons can once again access materials for their learning and entertainment needs. During this first phase of reopening, there will be no library materials available between other libraries as they plan safe openings for their communities. Because of this, only materials owned by AHPL can be requested.
