Upcoming Events

Children's Storytime

Please join us for a fun storytime which includes simple stories, action songs, nursery rhymes, fingerplays, and other fun activities with adult participation. This program is suitable for children ages 1 – 4 years old but all keiki are welcome.  Children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.  Registration is required as we need a head count for craft items and contact information in case of cancellation of the program.  Please remember to register as soon as possible as there is a limited space in each session. To register please come to the library or call 988-0459 during library hours.  Program schedule is subject to change.  Contact the library at least 15 days in advance to request a sign language interpreter or if special accommodations are needed.
