New Peer Navigator Program

A Partnership Between KPL and the Recovery Institute of Southwest Michigan

Today’s libraries do so much more than help people find something good to read. Last fall, KPL became the fifth public library in the country to launch a Peer Navigator program to connect patrons in need with local social services. KPL partnered with the Recovery Institute of Southwest Michigan which provides a licensed and certified Peer Navigator to personally reach out and offer assistance to patrons with substance abuse, mental health struggles, lack of housing, food and clothing needs and so much more. WWMT recently interviewed Kevin King, Head of Circulation and Branch Services who spearheaded this service at KPL, and Anthony Sorrentino, KPL’s peer navigator about the program.
