For those of you looking to stock up on borrowed books while we settle in for the second wave of lockdown, the Kalamazoo Public Library is taking some time to modify the current in-person practices for curbside delivery. As such, they will be closed until Monday, November 23rd.

According to their website, the Kalamazoo Public Library's three locations (downtown Kalamazoo, Oshtemo, and Eastwood) will provide curbside delivery service Monday–Friday, 1–6 pm, and Saturdays, 10 am–2 pm. Simply call your branch and reserve the items you'd like to borrow, then let them know when you're in the parking lot. When you're finished with the item, or the due date arrives, simply use one of the convenient dropboxes at these locations available for returns. As for the other two KPL branches, Washington Square and Alma Powell, they will remain closed until further notice.

 

Don't forget that your Kalamazoo Public Library card is also connected to the Hoopla app, where you can get immediate access to ebooks, audio books, CDs, movies, and more, that you borrow just like a physical item. Plus, their website has so many digital ways you can learn new skills, discover new talents, or investigate new hobbies all from the comfort and safety of your home.

We all want things to go back to normal as soon as possible. If we all do our part, we can see an end to these restrictions hopefully sooner than later.
