Kalamazoo, MI –

Kalamazoo, MI - September is Library Card Sign-up Month - a time when the American Library Association and libraries across the country remind parents and caregivers that a library card is the most important school supply of all. Kalamazoo Public Library wants to inform parents, caregivers and students of all ages, about the support and resources your library has to offer to ensure your scholastic success.


Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. For students, a library card is essential. A library card provides access to e-books, online homework help and a multitude of online research tools and resources for their studies. A library card at KPL also means access to computers and free Internet access. For those without Internet access at home, a library card may mean the difference between failing and having a successful school year.

Get Carded and Get Rewards!

In honor of Library Card Sign-up Month, the following Kalamazoo businesses and organizations have partnered with KPL and are offering an incentive just for showing your KPL library card during your visit.

Enjoy all the perks your library card has to offer, and be sure to share what your library card means to you with your friends, family and colleagues who don't have their own library card. Tell them the true value of libraries, and how the library benefits you.

Those who don't have a library card can get signed up today by visiting any of their local KPL locations. For more information, visit
