Makana Akamai

In Hawaiian, the phrase makana akamai means the "gift of knowledge." Makana Akamai is a program offered by the Friends of the Library of Hawaii where you can donate books to your favorite library branch. It's a wonderful way to honor someone for a special occasion or donate a book in someone's memory. Individuals and groups have donated to this program as a way of showing their support for and thanks to their local libraries. You may specify a category or area of interest or select "Librarian’s Choice." For more information and a donation form, visit the Friends of the Library of Hawaii website and select Makana Akamai.
