Dec 1, 2012 Welcome to the Hawaii Library Association Maui Conference on Day 15 of our new library reopening. Our Lahaina Library team welcomes librarians to Maui and reports on WHAT’S NEXT? YOU TUBE VIDEOS/FUTURE PLANS: Rotary Club of Lahaina/ Maui Friends of the Library

The Rotary Club of Lahaina and  Maui Friends of the Library facelift team welcomes librarians attending this week’s Hawaii Library Association Conference at the Hyatt Regency Resort and Spa.    Scroll down and then go  You Tube and search for Lahaina Library and you will see links to a  new video of the grand opening celebration, a report that appeared on TV, and the original Savor the Sunset promotional u tube for 2012. 

Jake Adams of Castaway Construction, on site many days and proud of his work, expresses the feeling of many at the grand opening celebration.

 

HERE IS AN UPDATE ON PLANS: 

PRESENTATION. Sara, Madeleine and Rick will make a photo filled presentation to the library group meeting Friday at the Hyatt. Currently being put together as this is written.

MEDIA INITIATIVES. We are going to try for some national recognition for our community efforts and these attempts will get underway soon. Library and Rotary publications, another stab at Honolulu Star Advertiser and Hawaii Public Radio

PHASE FOUR: Landscaping. We will be submitting a proposal to obtain a grant from one of our generous supporters. This has been on hold because of busyness with the grand opening and project completion.

Shawn McLaughlin has produced a plan calling for the installation of Native Hawaiian plants on the front lawn within an exciting layout.

BLOG/WEB SITE. Stay tuned for continuing news but perhaps put up infrequently.

MANY MAHALOS TO THE HUNDREDS WHO HAVE VISITED THIS SITE FOR THAN 1600 TIMES.

COMMENT: Attention: volunteers, businesses, community:  Send us comments on what you think of the new library or this effort. You may be quoted in post event publicity.  SIMPLY ADD YOUR COMMENT IN THE SPACE BELOW THIS POST. 

MAHALO, MAHALO, MAHALO.
