The Kalamazoo Public Library is using the month of September to show that having a library card has its privileges.
Its cardholders can get discounts at more than 15 local stores and museums during National Library Card Sign-up Month, according to a news release. Participating businesses include bookstores, coffee shops, restaurants, gift shops and the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts.
The complete list of merchants and institutions can be found on the library's website. There is also more information about this national initiative.
