Sis and I did some of her genealogy here when on our way to visit family in Battle Creek. Staff was so nice and helpful and even helped us find a good place to eat lunch.

Kalamazoo public libraries are phenomenal. They're current and very relevant to all generations. I especially appreciate the programs that have come through the Powell branch that past few years. The...y're really bringing community awareness and unity. Keep up the good work! See More

I think that it is sad that everyday people with a roof over their heads, food to eat and $$ in their pocket don't have a heart to help the needy. Remember, what goes up must come down. Hopefully, u d...on't have too far to fall off your high horse!! Js See More

I personally from the bottom of my heart. Love this library and I deeply respect it.
This Library has brought many memories and started many of friendships. I can't express the love and respect that ...i have for this library. The people working here from past to present are so very professional and I love all of them. I am truly glad to be part of Kalamazoo Public Library this place is where my true home is and If I ever do get rich or famous the first thing I'll do is donate money to the library. Everyone employed at The Kalamazoo Public library are just respectfully amazing. See More

All I wanted was to get my son a library card. Why did you have to make it so difficult. Please train your employees to be consistent. Four phone calls, three branches visited, me in tears getting up...set, and finally we were able to get one. Are you sure you didn't forget to grab a blood sample. See More

Nice and clean. A little to many homeless . I couldn't even wash my hands some lady was basically bathing in the sink. My kids enjoyed the games downstairs. Nice selection of graphic novels.

My only complaint is that it's sometimes difficult to get my daughter out of the kids' area. :D

Love this library. I've attended it for years and gotten to see it grow and expand first hand. Plus they are always open to new ideas and events, and take everyone of them seriously.

New in Local History: "Storm Struck: When Supercharged Winds Slammed Northwest Michigan." A devastating storm with a straight-wind blast struck Northwest Michigan on August 2, 2015. It left houses with gaping holes, thousands of residents with no power for days, and parts of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore unrecognizable. This book depicts the destructive storm and its impact on the affected counties including Leelanau, Grand Traverse and Antrim, with photographs by and stories about the storm's resilient survivors.
