Community Support for the Library


Kalamazoo citizens and voters historically have strongly valued and supported the civic and cultural life of our community – that support includes the Kalamazoo Public Library. Voters have approved every library operating millage since KPL’s first separate millage in 1974.

With that support, Kalamazoo Public Library has been able to provide a broad array of services — we believe beyond what most libraries in communities of our size can offer – while thoughtful, conservative stewardship by KPL’s board of trustees and staff has ensured fiscal health and stability.
