Celebrate Summer Reading and Gardening with Interval House Molokai and the Molokai Public Library! Join us on Saturday morning, May 31,on the public library grounds from 9:00 a.m. through noon, to launch into fun and enriching summer activities.
Our Molokai High School AmeriCorps members have grown thousands of papaya and veggie seedlings to give away to our community to start home gardens. Stop by and select from an assortment of papaya, green bean, mustard cabbage, parsley, lettuce, cherry tomato and mint starters, along with flowers to enhance your gardens. We will be distributing children’s gardening books that highlight where food comes from, the importance of eating fruits and vegetables, and how to start gardens in your own backyards.
Check out our First Book-Molokai literacy booth. We will be distributing more than 150 beautiful new books for children and young adults to promote summer reading, reading books with keiki, and offering art and other literacy activities.
The Molokai Public Library is anxious to register children, youth and adults in their summer reading program. Participants who visit the library and read a book weekly will receive free weekly reading incentives. This year’s program will explore all things related to Science and offer fun learning experiences about Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math concepts. Our librarian, Sri TenCate, will be on hand to help you sign up for this dynamic reading program.
