Membership Options

Friends of the Kalamazoo Public Library offer a variety of membership options. You decide which one works for you. Your dues are tax deductible* and 100% (except for mailing costs) goes to benefit the library. Friends proceeds fund many things like new puppets for the Children’s Room, or special book holders, or layman-friendly books for the Law Library. These “extras” help to make your library the special place it is. The membership year runs from April 1 to March 31, but you may join at any time. *Consult your tax adviser.

Membership Levels

  • Individual $15.00
  • Family $25.00

Upgrade Your Membership

It’s true that most of our members sign-up at either the $15 or $25 levels. But there are a few who feel passionately enough about our mission of assisting the KPL and in encouraging reading and literacy that they want to do more. Others wish they could help as volunteers but just don’t have the time to get heavily involved. One easy way to do a “bit more” for the Friends is to become a Supporter, Patron or Benefactor.

  • Supporter $50.00
  • Patron $75.00
  • Benefactor $100.00
  • Other Amount $____

Your larger gift makes you a very special member and we are most appreciative.

Thank you for your support!
