Friends of the Libraries, Kona
Receives $1,000 Grant from the
Friends of the Libraries, Kona (F.O.L.K.) is pleased to
announce a $1000.00 grant from the IRONMAN
Foundation and World Triathlon Corporation in support
of our Friendly Bus to the Library Program.
F.O.L.K. provides bus transportation for second grade
students in Kona elementary schools to visit the library.
On the visit the Children’s Librarian will take the students
on a tour, provide a story hour and help them receive
their library cards. Early literacy skills contribute to future
success in school. Libraries help parents learn to be
their child’s first teacher.
This grant is part of the ongoing efforts by the IRONMAN
World Championship to strengthen our community and
perpetuate the aloha spirit.

This is a just heads-up that our Programs can be found on Facebook
Once you have joined the event, the date will be saved to your 'Events'
link on the left-hand panel of your home page, making it easy to
remember the date. Since there are a lot of posts being put on the
Facebook page (branch closure notices, events, etc.), it's easier to
find events by clicking on the 'Events' box, which is located at the top
of the page below the header on the right hand side.The 'Events' box
is an easier way to navigate all of the branches' events. If you're
following the event (by clicking the 'Join' option), you'll automatically
receive a notification about event updates.
You can also find us on Twitter at:
Once you favorite an event on Twitter, it'll be listed under your favorites
and easier to keep track of.
