Current and Comprehensive Legal Materials


The Law Library provides current and comprehensive legal materials that meet the legal research and information needs of library users.

Kalamazoo’s Raymond W. Fox Law Library models intergovernmental cooperation. Kalamazoo County funded the renovation of former storage

space to house the law library at the Kalamazoo Public Library and continues to assist with materials costs. KPL contributes library staff, technological

expertise, and a state-of-the-art facility. The County Bar Association collaborates with KPL on programming.
