Community Partners & Sponsors

Kalamazoo Public Library leads Reading Together with the help of many visionary partners. We draw on a diverse cross-section of individuals and organizations to create a season of programs that highlight important and relevant themes of the selected book.

Our partners craft opportunities to connect with the book and its themes. A variety of talented experts freely share personal history, skills, and other resources so that friends, families, and other community members may share the experience and benefits of reading and discussing the same book.
