Kalamazoo, MI –

June Jubilee is this weekend, and thousands of visitors will be swarming downtown Chicago for a day of fun! If you are bringing the family to watch the Do-Dah Parade, be sure to swing by Kalamazoo Public Library afterwards for their annual kick-off party for the Summer Reading Challenge! The party will be from 11 am – 2 pm on Saturday, June 6 in the Rose and Lovell parking lot next to Central Library.

The kick-off party will include inflatables, games and special guests! While you are there, be sure to sign-up for the 2015 Summer Reading Challenge. It’s easy, just sign up, read and win terrific prizes!

Other June Jubilee events:
Friday, June 5, 5 pm – 8 pm: Art Hop: Tintype Photography by Eric Hennig 
Self-taught photographer Eric Hennig specializes in antique tintype and ambrotype photographs, a process used during the middle 1800s. Known in some circles as Victor Vague, Hennig creates gorgeous wet-plate collodion photographs using 19th century techniques and equipment. His anachronistic portraits command the viewer’s attention and demand a closer look, fairly drawing out the very soul of his subjects and creating a haunting image seemingly transported from another era.

Saturday, June 6, 9 am – 3:30 pm: Friends Summer Bag-of-Books Sale 
10¢ each or a grocery bag full for $2.00! Don’t miss the Friends annual June Jubilee Sidewalk Sale on the sidewalk outside Central Library. Choose from more than 10,000 books at just $2.00 a bag or 10¢ a book; fiction, mystery, romance, and more. Kids can browse carts full of children’s books, too.
