Federal Depository Library

The Kalamazoo Public Library is committed to helping you find and access the government information you need. KPL has been a Federal Depository Library, maintaining federal government information for the public, since 1907. KPL also holds numerous Michigan government materials.

If you are not eligible for a library card, but you need to research federal government information online, you may obtain a visitor's pass to use the public computers.  Visitor pass time may be extended, depending on computer availability, to  research federal government information. Please speak to a staff member.
