Leave a Legacy: Mary Spradling

Mary Spradling died in 2009. Today she’s teaching people about the history, experiences and contributions of African Americans.

Mary loved Kalamazoo. She was Kalamazoo Public Library’s first black professional librarian and in 1998 donated a collection of almost 3,000 books, magazines and record albums highlighting the history, experiences and contributions of African Americans to Kalamazoo Valley Community College. Her legacy is a Community Foundation fund created in her honor to maintain and enhance the collection.  

We can help you show your love for Kalamazoo and Leave a legacy too. Contact a member of our Donor Relations team to learn how.
