Free Comic Book Day

Free Comic Book Day is here again! On Saturday, May 7, come over and show us your library card to get a free comic book. Limit ONE per person, while supplies last. Selected titles are suitable for toddlers through teens. As in previous years, costumed Star Wars characters from Rebel Legion Hawaii and Oahu FanForce will make a special appearance to take pictures, sign comic books, and chat with fans from 10 a.m. to noon.  Don't forget to bring your camera! Big thanks to Rebel Legion Hawaii, Oahu FanForce, Jelly's the Original Collector Maniacs, and Friends of the Library of Hawaii for their support!

Photovoltaic System at Aina Haina Library

Great News! Aina Haina Library is one of the libraries to receive photovoltaic system installation starting in March 2011. Reroofing will precedes installation of the solar panels. Construction is expected to complete in late June. Please pardon the noise during construction!

Tsunami Warning Resulted in Library Closure

The entire public library system experienced unexpected closure yesterday as a result of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. The Governor issued a press release stating that only essential (disaster relief) workers should report to work. This keeps the roads clear and allows crews to try to clear up any tsunami damage as well as handle any other emergencies. The scheduled AARP tax help was canceled. We have also adjusted the material check-in dates and other related charges. Thank you for your understanding.
