Bruce  Caple

A twenty-year resident of Kalamazoo, Bruce Caple believes that our community is extraordinarily blessed with vibrant institutions such as the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, the Gilmore Festival, the Kalamazoo Area Math and Science Center, and, of course, the Kalamazoo Public Library. His feeling that residents must support and be involved in the institutions that enrich our daily lives led him to run for the KPL board.

Bruce has used libraries throughout his life, starting with the Allen County Public Library in his home town of Fort Wayne, Indiana; The Free Library of Philadelphia; and the Des Moines Public Library. He treasures his father's signed ACPL card, the person most responsible for his lifelong love of reading.

Educated at Indiana University, Bruce earned a Bachelor of Science in management from IU’s Kelly School of Business. He has worked for 24 years at Total Plastics Inc, as a branch manager, information technology manager, and financial analyst.
