Why does the library need friends?
Although tax supported, public libraries need
many additional items for which funding is not
allocated.  F.O.L.K. provides supplementary
funds for such items as:
  • Circulation materials
  • Children's Programs
  • Staff Education
  • Support for Summer Reading Program
  • Community Adult Programs

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 (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.

Cokie Roberts’, Founding Mothers, is
an intimate and illuminating look at
the fervently patriotic and passionate
women whose tireless pursuits on
behalf of their families -- and their
country -- proved just as crucial to the
forging of a new nation as the
rebellion that established it. While
much has been written about the men
who signed the Declaration of
Independence, battled the British,
and framed the Constitution, the
wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters
they left behind have been little
noticed by history. Roberts brings us
the women who fought the Revolution
as valiantly as the men, often
defending their very doorsteps.
