Upcoming events at this branch

Every Thursday morning, we welcome families with young children ages 0 to 5 years to participate in storytime or playgroup at the library. Please ask the library staff if you would like to know which type of program will be happening this week.

Storytime: The librarian will present an interactive program featuring stories and songs, followed by a group activity (e.g. process art, simple craft, or free play).

Playgroup: The library’s collection of toys and puzzles are available for little ones to play with their grownups and other friends!

Young children must be accompanied by an adult caregiver.

Slack key guitarist Jeff Peterson

In Celebration of the 2019 Summer Reading Program!

Jeff Peterson will perform guitar tunes that celebrate Polynesian navigation, the Haleakalā mountain, the Aurora Borealis, and play original music including “Hawaiian Skies” from “The Descendants” film soundtrack. Jeff will also share stories of this grandfather who was a lecturer at the Bishop Museum Planetarium.

Jeff was born on Maui and introduced to the rich heritage of Hawaiian music by his father on the Haleakalā Ranch. He has contributed to two Grammy Award-winning recordings and has been honored with nine Na Hōkū Hanohano Awards.
