Join us at the Central Library during the October Art Hop for this immersive experience in observance of the 150th anniversary of Kalamazoo Public Library. Walk through a life-size exhibit of historic photos from the early library buildings, interact with KPL staff members in period costumes, enjoy musical entertainment by The Mall City Harmonizers (barbershop) and, thanks to the sponsorship of Connecting Chords Music Festival, Sweetbriar Sisters (ukulele trio), participate in hands-on activities, receive a commemorative souvenir of the occasion, and of course, enjoy some birthday cake!
