Join Our Community

Why does the library need friends? Hawaii Public Libraries need many additional items for which tax funding is not allocated. F.O.L.K. provides supplementary funds for library programs and items such as: circulation materials, children's programs, staff education, summer reading programs, presentations and lectures.

F.O.L.K. Membership dues, book sales revenue and other donations and grants go directly to support both the Kailua Kona and Kealakekua Public Libraries to allow our libraries to offer programs and services to our communities that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.

Lahaina Public Library needs your help. Visit the Friends of the Libraries, Maui to help the library and bookstore rebuild after the wildfires.



All Members are invited and encouraged to join our Volunteer Ohana! We offer many opportunities and appreciate any amount of time you are able to give.
