National Library Week, April 12-18

Library patrons joined the Friends in celebrating Kalamazoo Public Library with bright yellow yard signs during National Library Week, April 12-18.

We appreciate your support

We created the signs because we’re proud of our nationally award-winning library and appreciate all that the library offers to the community. And we know you do, too!
