    First Saturday Fun @ the Library!

    Take your family to the library the first Saturday of every month! Enjoy fun, free activities with your family. 

    On May 3rd, we'll have fun with the Kalamazoo Literacy Council! In June, we'll kick of Summer Reading Games with a big party in the library parking lot. In August, we'll have flower and garden activities as part of Kalamazoo in Bloom's weekend festivities.

    *First Saturday will not be offered on Saturday, July 5th.
