About

Welcome to the Honokaa Public Library! Our small 3,040-sq. ft. plantation-style building was built in 1936 and opened on June 5, 1937. One treasure in our collection is a photocopy of the original ships’ logs that brought Portuguese immigrants to Hawaii Island. Our library is the only place in the community that rents DVDs!

cover of Scythe by Neal Shusterman

This month’s selection is Scythe by Neal Shusterman. A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery. Humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now scythes are the only ones who can end life — and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control. Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe — a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own. – Goodreads

Teen Book Club meets on the 2nd Monday of every month, and all books read are voted on by the members of the group. Copies of each month’s book are available at Honokaa Library.

Cover image of The Book of Hope - Jane Goodall

This month’s selection is The Book of Hope: A Survival Guide for Trying Times. In this urgent book, Jane Goodall, the world’s most famous living naturalist and Doug Abrams, internationally-bestselling author, explore — through intimate and thought-provoking dialogue — one of the most sought after and least understood elements of human nature: hope. Told through stories from a remarkable career and fascinating research, The Book of Hope touches on vital questions including: How do we stay hopeful when everything seems hopeless? How do we cultivate hope in our children? Filled with engaging dialogue and pictures from Jane’s storied career, The Book of Hope is a deeply personal conversation with one of the most beloved figures in today’s world. — Goodreads
