  • closure

We’re pleased to let you know that our new, expanded parking lot is about to be installed, now that the warm weather has returned. We apologize for the inconvenience of temporary street-only parking, beginning Wednesday, April 21 and wrapping up by the end of the following week (weather permitting). We will also be closing the drive-through lane temporarily while this work is in progress. The building will be open, however. Come by to see how the grounds are shaping up, grab a book and a movie, and enjoy the beautiful views of the Kalamazoo River. We look forward to completing this major component of the new Ransom District Library building!
