The Friends of the North Shore Library at Princeville raise funds to support the Princeville Public Library.
These funds greatly enhance the library’s collections and services. In light of continuous budget cuts to the Hawaii State Public Library System–including the elimination of the library’s materials budget– the Friends have helped the library continue to buy a variety of new print books, audio books, and DVDs**.
Here are other ways that funds raised by the Friends have contributed to the library recently:
Support children’s programs: The Friends support the children’s Story Time, Play Time, and Lego Club program by covering the cost of craft supplies, Lego building plates, and games. They have also contributed toward extra incentives and prizes for the children’s summer reading program.
Equipment and furniture: With Friends’ funds, the librarian was able to purchase headphones for the public computers; browsing baskets, and a key cabinet for the Branch Manager’s office. The Friends also purchased and installed a new notice display case and benches for the outside of the library.
Magazine subscriptions: Friends’ funds give the librarian flexibility to try new subscriptions in addition to the library’s core subscriptions that reflect the community’s interests.

The Art on the Walls program of the Northshore Library at Princeville is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the artistic talent of our local keiki, as well as local artists.
The Friends of the Library organizes with local schools to feature the art work of students coordinated in class under the direction of their teachers and administration. The art work is prominently featured in the library.
The Art on the Walls program encourages the arts while improving the community relationship between the children, their families and friends, and our library. Visit our library to see the young artistic talent on display.
