Kalamazoo library to reopen next week

The library has been providing curbside service only since November.

The Kalamazoo Public Library has announced it will reopen to the public next Monday.

All five branches have been closed since November when state health officials issued restrictions meant to slow the spread of COVID-19. During that time, the library maintained curbside service for its patrons as well as online services.

In advance of the reopening, the library will be completely shut for preparations for most of the week. The central branch will be closed Thursday through Sunday, while other branches will be closed Friday through Sunday.

On Monday, all five branches will allow people inside for the first time in almost four months, though there will still be limitations.

Patrons will only be allowed to browse for up to an hour and the buildings will be limited to 25% capacity.
