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
Kailua Kona Branch
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-

Every time Ursula Todd dies, she is
born again. Each successive life is an
iteration on the last, and we see how
Ursula's choices affect her and those
around her while balancing the weight
of two World Wars. Deeply empathic
and scathingly funny, Atkinson shows
what it is like to face the horrors of
war and yet still find the determination
to go on.
