ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Documents show that Ann Arbor police have been called to handle hundreds of complaints, including reports of heroin overdoses, at the city's downtown library during the past three years.

The Ann Arbor News reports (http://bit.ly/1oPjExz ) that it on Wednesday obtained a list of calls for police service at the library dating back to Jan. 1, 2011, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request to police.

The newspaper also obtained Ann Arbor District Library reports that detail at least eight instances of known or suspected heroin use, including four overdoses.

Library Director Josie Parker recently sounded an alarm about heroin activity. She's warned the city could see many of the same problems if a public park is built on the city-owned Library Lot next to the downtown library.
