The Library Ladies of Kalamazoo: Their Home and History

Authors of the new book “The Library Ladies of Kalamazoo: Their Home and History” tell how they collaborated to create a beautifully designed 220-page pictorial guide of the oldest women’s club in Michigan and the third oldest in the nation. Discover how the organization was founded, the trials and triumphs that charter members encountered as women of the 19th century and how the organization and its building have remained a vibrant landmark in the community for more than 160 years. “Library Ladies of Kalamazoo: Their Home and History” received an award of merit from the Kalamazoo Historical Society. This 220-page pictorial guide was written by eight LLA members; Lois I. Richmond (Author), Vanita Aloisio (Author), Barbara Baker (Author), Lisa Salay (Author), Judy Sherrod (Editor), Deborah M. Killarney (Editor), Carla J. Noe-Emig (Photographer), Nick Emig (Cover Design), Sonya Hollins Season Press LLC (Consultant Editor), Sean Hollins Fortitude Graphics (Designer).
