“The Little Library that Could” on KSSK

Our very own head librarian Wendy Maxwell will be speaking to Perry and Price about The Makiki Community Library. Listen in on AM590 or FM92.3 at 6:50 a.m. this Friday (Sept. 5). This will be a two-minute publicity promotion for the library. She will talk about our upcoming “A Taste for Books” on Sept. 23 and, time permitting, an update on being part of the Hawaii State Library System, and a little history on “The Little Library that Could.”
