Kalamazoo, MI –

Due to damage caused by heavy rains and recurring flooding in the Edison and surrounding neighborhoods, Kalamazoo Public Library has hired Great Lakes Waterproofing and Camelot Service to conduct repairs on the Washington Square Branch Library’s lower level. These repairs include the removal of damaged materials such as dry wall, installing a dewatering system, and conducting other repairs. Work will begin on Monday, September 10, and is expected to take 8 weeks.

These repairs will affect the lower level of the library only. KPL recognizes the Washington Square Branch Library is a vital resource to the Edison community. Therefore, the library will not be closed during these repairs but may operate under modified hours during some phases of construction due to noise. KPL is coordinating with the construction companies to conduct repairs in the mornings during the hours the Washington Square Branch Library would normally be closed. More information about modified hours will be posted once they are confirmed.

Kalamazoo Public Library apologizes for the inconvenience and appreciates the public’s patience as they take the necessary steps to repair structural issues that will protect and preserve Washington Square Branch Library so it may be continued to be enjoyed by the residents of the Edison Neighborhood for many years to come.
