Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i is MOVING!!!

We have moved. Please contact us via email through the contact us page. Mahalo for your patience while we make this transition.

Our 690 Pohukaina Street location in Kaka‘ako is slated for redevelopment and we must move out by December 31, 2014. We are unable to accept donations starting November 14 through December 31. Please bring your donations to your nearest library branch. Starting on January 1, 2015, please bring donations to our Harbor Warehouse Location in Kaka‘ako, near the UH Medical School and ReUse Hawai‘i.    

We are looking for 5,000 sq ft of air conditioned warehouse space with 10 parking spaces where our volunteers can work to process book donations. We are also interested in opening a bookstore at this location (or another location) space permitting. Please contact us with any leads!!!
