The 2023 Summer Reading Challenge has ended. We hope you enjoyed this year’s challenge and library events. A grand prize winner has been selected. View the Alaska Airlines Grand Prize Presentation.
This year’s theme was E Heluhelu Kākou: Seeds of Knowledge, and we celebrated Hawai‘i–our islands, people, environment, cultural heritage, literature, history, foods and arts. Our Summer Reading Challenge is powered by Beanstack.
