Your blogger-photograper took a break from clicking at the library and enlisted Rotarian Sharon Brooks of our club and Take One Media to showcase our work with architectural quality photos. MOre beautiful than ever when seen through the lenses. Mele Kalikimaka to all those who helped build this great success. More photos before year end.
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.
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.

Cindy Springer of Green Room Organics, an eco cleaning service, and crew members Rachel Kane and Meilan Clark, the latest people from local businesses to join us for volunteer services, have just 175 windows to go inside and out but it is expected they will finish before tomorrow’s 4 p.m. celebration. See you there on the Lahaina Library lawn.
