Kalamazoo library to close again
The Kalamazoo Public Library is closing its doors again just over a month after it reopened them.
The move is meant to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the system’s five locations as new infection numbers surge throughout the county.
The library will be completely closed Thursday, April 8 through Sunday. It will resume operations on Monday, providing curbside service to patrons as it has done for much of the past year.
“Kalamazoo Public Library appreciates the community’s continued patience, understanding, and support of our efforts to keep our patrons and staff safe,” reads a press release from KPL.
Besides book loans, KPL provides a variety of services, many of which will continue even after it is closed to the public. Services include book recommendations, virtual events, and Chromebook lending.
