Kalamazoo Reads


Some famous faces show their support for the simple but powerful message—READ—on posters published by the American Library Association.

Kalamazoo Public Library has also published many READ posters featuring local faces, including library patrons and Kalamazoo Public Schools principals and administrators.

KPL first offered patrons the chance to have a photo taken for a READ poster during National Library Week in 2008. The photos were posted on the library website so people could vote for their favorite. The top two vote-getters at each location were printed on a bookmark.

Besides the bookmarks, you’ll see photos and posters on a banner, in print ads and on the new library van, wrapped by Agio Imaging.
