The city of Ann Arbor also provides the A-Ride Service for those who cannot use the standard Ann Arbor buses.
Parking – Information on parking services for retirees is available from U-M Parking Services.
Mirlyn Get This Service – This is a free service available to anyone who can log in to Mirlyn, the University Library catalog, with a valid account. The Get This service allows one to request a circulating item be sent from one participating library to another.
Drop Boxes – There are two drop boxes where you can return items you have checked out from the University Libraries that are accessible from a car. One is at the Shapiro Library. The drop box is on the northwest side of the building and is accessible from the driveway that runs between the Clements and Shapiro Libraries. The other is on North Campus. It is located in the circular driveway at the front of Pierpont Commons.
