Texas Township is home to four different award-winning school districts that serve the educational need of our residents. Additionally, we are also home to Kalamazoo Valley Community College, one of the area’s largest community colleges. To determine which school district you are in, please call the Township Office at 269-375-1591. The school district you reside in also impacts which library you have access to.
Kalamazoo Public Schools | Kalamazoo Public Library
Residents of the Kalamazoo School District (Voting Precinct Number 3) have access to the Kalamazoo Public Library. This service is included in the library millage that residents of the Kalamazoo School District pay in their Winter taxes.
Mattawan Consolidated Schools | Van Buren District Library
Residents who live in the Mattawan Consolidated School District (Voting Precincts Number 1, 2 and 6) do not pay a library millage, and as such, do not have access to the Van Buren District Libraries. Texas Township has chosen not to pursue a library millage for this service, as a millage for library service is actually much higher than the cost of annual library membership. Anyone, regardless of which precinct they reside, is able to purchase a membership to the Van Buren District Library.
