Take your family to the library the first Saturday of every month! Enjoy fun, free activities. Free books and door prizes!

On September 1, 2012, Kalamazoo Public Library and Kalamazoo Public Schools will sponsor First Saturday, from 2-4 pm, at the Central Library’s Children’s Room, 315 S Rose St. This new initiative, now in its sixth month, encourages families to make regular library visits an important part of their lives. Hundreds of parents and children have attended the First Saturday events so far!

On First Saturday, families will enjoy fun, free activities designed to entertain their children. They’ll see that the library offers popular movies, music and books to borrow and computers to work on, all for free. They’ll learn that libraries and librarians can answer questions on hundreds of topics, plus help with homework.

Partner Organizations
A number of other organizations are partnering with KPL and KPS in the First Saturday initiative. Each month, one or more of the partners will cosponsor the First Saturday event. Please join us!

Partner organizations currently include Boys and Girls Club of Kalamazoo, Communities in Schools of Kalamazoo, Kalamazoo County Ready 4s, Kalamazoo Literacy Council, Goodwill Industries of Southwest Michigan, NAACP, and the Northside Ministerial Alliance. Any organization that serves families and children will be welcome in the initiative.
