Makiki Library Open House – Saturday, August 25, Noon-4pm

On Saturday, August 25, 2012, from noon to 4pm, the Friends of the Makiki Community Library (FMCL) will host numerous organizations that currently utilize the library, as well as several local publishing houses. Organizations will have materials to distribute to the public, and patrons will have a chance to see the library’s numerous attributes and recent upgrades. The FMCL will provide limited snacks and drinks for patrons.

The FMCL encourages the community to visit the only library in the Makiki area, run by volunteers outside of the state library system. In the future, the FMCL is planning more community involvement and is seeking to expand both the visibility of the library as well as its use by appropriate organizations that further its mission.

The Friends of Makiki Community Library (formerly the Friends of Makiki Library) is a group that manages the Makiki Library, the Frank F. Fasi Citizen Resource Center, and other programs that comprise the Makiki Community Library (MCL). The Friends is overseen by a board of directors that sets overall policies, goals, and management practices for the Learning Center.

We hope that you will be able to join us. There is no need to RSVP.
