Upcoming events at this branch

Aunty Jeri Lu

Story Time for toddlers and preschoolers.  Group sessions focusing on strengthening social skills and developing language through stories and songs.  Aunty Jeri Lu has been working with children in Hawai’i for the past twenty years.  She is currently with Imua Family Services, is passionate about children’s literature and is excited to bring Story Time to the Keiki of Molokai.  Be sure to join her, enjoy the stories and get a free book!!

Lynn Schuette in Office

In partnership with the Molokai Arts Center, we present Lynn Schuette, Artist in Residence for the Center visiting from the San Diego, California area.  Her practice includes painting, drawing and mixed media.  Schuette often explores the body and nature, ranging from classical figurative and landscape painting to anatomical/medical imagery often laced with contemporary social issues. Since 1987, she has created fourteen series of works including Bloodstorm, an exploration of boxing, 1990-92; Mi oeste perdido (My Lost West), elemental landscapes, times of day and weather conditions, using white, black and yellow ochre only, 2004-2009; and The Beauty Project which included sixty-four paintings generated from answers to a question about beauty, 2010.  Recent works include the Stay Romantic Series including Warpaint featured in shows on the mainland.  You’ll enjoy learning more about her body of works and have an opportunity to ask her questions about her process and works.

Musician Playing Ukulele Guitar

What better way to spend some time on the last Friday afternoon of each month than jamming with other ukulele lovers in the library.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to share your talent and meet others who love the ukulele as well.  In fact, any stringed instruments are encouraged.  Stop in and you might be surprised who shows up!

Light refreshments will be served.  No need to sign up in advance–just show up on the last Friday of each month at 3:00pm.
