"We got really clear feed-

are proud to play that role in the
community, proud to be a space
where all kinds of residents want
to come to," she said. "But, they

more understanding of area of
resources to be able to help folks
who are coming here with par-

folks facing homelessness."
Josie Parker, director of the
Ann Arbor District Library, said
everyone is welcome in the library.
However, she noted that if a per-
son is a distraction to others due to
impaired and involuntary behav-

library can maintain its status as a
safe place for its customers.
"When we have the numbers
of persons in the library who are
homeless that we had last year,
the incidents of impairment and
persons who are uncooperative
with our staff about their behav-
ior goes up," Parker said. "It's felt
by everyone who's in the library
at that point time. We're trying to
mitigate that. In order to do that,
we've reached out."
