You're in for a treat when visiting the newly refurbished Lahaina Public Library.
Thanks to Sara Foley's leadership, along with the hard work of Norm Bezane, The Friends of the Library, Rotary fundraisers, the efforts of so many who volunteered their time and muscle, and contractors who went well beyond their contract to put it all together, we now have new shelves, clean sparkling new floors, fresh painted walls, cool unobstructed breezes and an organized office. We can now actually see our librarians sitting behind the desk.
The local public library is the one place in a city or town where everyone is welcome to enjoy books, check out videos and cruise the Internet. It's a place to develop an appreciation for literature or just read for entertainment.
In all the places I have lived since childhood - and there are many - it is the one public building I remember most vividly.
A public library is a reflection of who we are as a community.
