Lake Michigan and South Haven Lighthouse - Popular Topics in Kalamazoo and Beyond


The new South Haven Michigan Lighthouse Log digital collection at Western Michigan University Libraries contains the first of three books being digitized for public access. Marine historians, lighthouse enthusiasts and others will enjoy the 1872-1880 book that is newly imaged and published in a book-reader format here on the Internet. http://luna.library.wmich.edu:8180/luna/servlet/s/f49ic5

The availability of this new resource coincides with the Kalamazoo Public Library Reading Together program whose current book is Dennis's The Living Great Lakes. It is a great program with book clubs, discussion groups and online information for the Kalamazoo area on a very interesting topic. Here is a blog post by a WMU librarian who is also a part of the Reading Together Program. It discusses both resources. http://www.kpl.gov/reading-together/2015/blog/Default.aspx?blogmonth=3&blogyear=2015&blogid=15032385688

Together they create an especially rich west Michigan - Great Lakes information experience.
