Facebook and Twitter
This is a just heads-up that our Programs can be found on Facebook
Once you have joined the event, the date will be saved to your 'Events'
link on the left-hand panel of your home page, making it easy to
remember the date. Since there are a lot of posts being put on the
Facebook page (branch closure notices, events, etc.), it's easier to
find events by clicking on the 'Events' box, which is located at the top
of the page below the header on the right hand side.The 'Events' box
is an easier way to navigate all of the branches' events. If you're
following the event (by clicking the 'Join' option), you'll automatically
receive a notification about event updates.
You can also find us on Twitter at:
Once you favorite an event on Twitter, it'll be listed under your favorites
and easier to keep track of.

When you purchase from Amazon
Take advantage of Amazon Smile
There is no cost to you. It only takes signing in to Amazon
Smile which will automatically donate 0.5% of your
purchases to the charity you select. It costs you (and the
charitable organizations) nothing, and it's just like shopping
on Amazon normally, but you get to do a world of good.
Start your shopping at smile.amazon.com (which means you
have to update your bookmark if you want to do this), and
shopping from the Amazon apps, Kindle, or through affiliate
links won't count.
Select Friends of the Libraries, Kona as your charity and
Amazon takes care of the rest.
