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 Realm Breaker by Victoria Aveyard

October’s book is Realm Breaker by Victoria Aveyard.

A strange darkness grows in Allward. Even Corayne an-Amarat can feel it, tucked away in her small town at the edge of the sea. She soon discovers the truth: she is the last of an ancient lineage — and the last hope to save the world from destruction. But she won’t be alone. Even as darkness falls, she is joined by a band of unlikely companions: a squire, an immortal, an assassin, an ancient sorceress, a forger, and a bounty hunter with a score to settle. – Barnes & Noble

All books read are voted on by members of the group. Copies of the book are available at the circulation desk of Honokaa Library.
