An internet ranking of the 50 most beautiful book repositories in the country (one for each state) lists Kalamazoo Public Library's main branch as the most impressive in Michigan.

Kalamazoo Public Library shared the good news on their Facebook page that lifestyle website Bustle awarded them the top honors in Michigan on their ranking of the most gorgeous libraries in every single state. Here's what they had to say about it:

The Kalamazoo Public Library is beloved by its community; that much is clear from the citizens' long history of voting to continue funding the library. The library encourages community reading with programs such as the Reading Together program — and every one of their 90 staff is passionate about connecting readers with their perfect book.
