Celebrate National Library Week
Hawaii State Public Library System News Release
Whether you are a job seeker looking for resources to find a new job, a parent looking for free activities for children or a student searching for your next favorite book, you belong at your library. Help us celebrate this year’s National Library Week from April 8-14 with a series of programs around the state, and on Molokai.
John Keawe, a self-taught slack-key guitarist, is a multiple Na Hoku Hanohano and Hawaii Music Awards recipient and a contributing artist on Hawaii’s first Grammy winner, “Slack Key Guitar Volume 2″ (2005). Keawe will offer a tribute to the slack key style and include selections from the music of Raymond Kane, Leonard Quan, and others, in addition to presenting his original compositions, at the Molokai Public Library on April 11 at 3 p.m.
In a performance called “America Music,” Molokai musicians Jay Allison, Norman DeCosta, and Douglas Barnd will present a blend of blue grass, blues, folk, and country music at Molokai Public Library on April 9 at 3 p.m.
The Hawaii State Public Library System (HSPLS) helps level the playing field by making both print and digital information available and accessible to everyone statewide, from keiki to kupuna. Our libraries provide a variety of free services such as Internet access with a valid library card, wifi, downloadable e-books, audiobooks, and e-music; performances, programs, displays, and exhibits for all ages; toddler and preschool story times, 24/7 remote access to online databases and our Public Access Catalog, and much more.
