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.
|Help F.O.L.K. Raise $$$!
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.

|Computer User Support at the Kailua Kona
One of the most popular services provided by all branches in the Hawaii State
Public Library System is free personal computer (PC) access for library users.
The library PC provides free access to the Internet and the library system's
many online resources, as well as a variety of software applications, including
Microsoft Office. The Hawaii State Public Library System also offers over
20,000 electronic book and Audiobook titles from the OverDrive/Digital Library
Reserve. With OverDrive, you can borrow and enjoy free e-Books,
audiobooks, and more from the library's digital collection. To help patrons use
these services, F.O.L.K. is providing a PC support resource at the Kailua Kona
branch. “Mr. Ed” has two scheduled time slots at the library each week,
Tuesdays and Fridays from 1PM to 3PM, to assist users with accessing the
library’s computers and digital materials. This support can include basic
system log-in, use of Windows’ screens, and Internet and online e-mail
access. We also provide basic user education with Microsoft Word and Excel
programs including document formatting and printing. In addition, we can
show users how to download electronic books from the library system to their
PCs, tablets or e-book readers (Kindle, Nook, iPad, etc.). We’ll even help
troubleshoot a patron’s computer, tablet, or e-book reader if they bring their
device to the library.
We urge you to stop by to see what computer resources the Kailua Kona
library offers and talk with Mr. Ed about your PC or tablet/e-reader questions.

|Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New
Yorker, miraculously survives an
accident that kills his mother.
Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken
in by the family of a wealthy friend.
Bewildered by his strange new home
on Park Avenue, disturbed by
schoolmates who don't know how to
talk to him, and tormented above all by
his longing for his mother, he clings to
the one thing that reminds him of her: a
small, mysteriously captivating painting
that ultimately draws Theo into the
underworld of art.
|SEED SHARE PROJECT
Plans are forming to open the Community Seed Exchange at
the library in the beginning of September. The seeds will be
packaged and easily available for those wanting them. We
would like to have volunteers who can spend time at the
Exchange desk on a regular basis to answer questions, explain
the process and talk about upcoming programs. If you are
interested, please contact Natalie Guerin at
Nehamah47@gmail.com or 508.264.7335.
