This week our normal business hours resume. The new year is firmly underway and we begin 2013 grateful for the opportunity to continue the rewarding relationships we have with the Kalamazoo Public Library and also with the Kalamazoo/Portage community.
The Friends of the Kalamazoo Public Library was organized in 1937 by a group of residents that valued and wanted to give support to the public library. (Click here to learn more about the history of the FKPL http://www.kpl.gov/friends/history.aspx
) The present Board and members of the Friends of KPL continues to be dedicated to promoting the library as an essential institution in our community. We feel privileged to be able to carry on these efforts and proud of our local public library and all the important services it offers to our community. We believe that the Kalamazoo Public Library is truly one of Kalamazoo’s greatest assets.
Kalamazoo is a community that values and supports its library. One of the ways this community shows that support is through generous donations to the FKPL. We are constantly surprised and delighted by the quantity and quality of the donations we receive.
So as we begin this new year we want to thank the Kalamazoo Public Library for the amazing contributions it makes to our community, we want to thank all of the wonderful people that donate books and music and movies, and we want to thank our customers who over time have become our friends.
Spotlights this week are: Religion, Political Science, and Poetry
