Despite the frigid temps, Holiday Hop was HUGE!
Over 650 people attended our annual Holiday Hop celebration on December 5th. This event is part of the December Art Hop sponsored by the Arts Council of Kalamazoo. This year over 50 local authors including Bonnie Jo Campbell, Nic Bishop, Wendy Anderson Halperin and William Decker, who signed books and talked to participants. Many of our great local poets read from their works in the Children's Room. The Van Deusen Room was transformed into a Christmas Bazaar as KPL staff, friends and family displayed and sold their art. The evening was complete with music provided by the Ken Morgan Jazz Trio.
