A nonprofit association of people of all ages and occupations, who recognize the importance of excellent libraries. We assist the libraries in providing the best possible service to the community.
Why does the library need friends?Although tax supported, public libraries need many additional items for which funding is not allocated. F.O.L.K. provides supplementary funds for such items as:Circulation materials, Children's Programs, Staff Education, Support for Summer Reading Program, Community Adult Programs
Membership dues and revenues generated by our book sales go directly to support both the Kailua Kona and Kealakekua libraries. These revenues, plus other donations and grants, allow our libraries to offer programs and services to our communities that wouldn’t otherwise be possible with only State allocated budget funding.
Friendly Bus, Books for Babies, Community Seed Library, Travel Conversation Circle, Summer Reading Program Support, F.O.L.K. Book Club, F.O.L.K. Scholarship
This is the heart of FOLK. We invite those members,not currently actively engaged with FOLK to join our Volunteer Ohana. We offer the many opportunities and appreciate any amount of time you are able to give. Please contact us.
