Checking Items Out

Each year we add hundreds of items to our collection from your suggestions. Decisions are made using our board-approved Materials Selection Policy.

The Materials Selection Policy guides the addition of materials for the collection. Each item must meet the needs of the overall collection. Number of similar titles, intended audience, cost, date written or published, etc., are all considered. If you are not a Kalamazoo Public Library District resident, we encourage you to make suggestions at your home library.
