We have purchased an 11,747 SF facility suitable for our operations. We need your help to reach our goal! Help us continue to support public library programs and continue to provide affordable books to our community!
What do we do?
- More than 75 volunteers give their time year-round to process 750,000+ donations and store 150+ pallets of books & media for our sales in our warehouse.
- Our sales raise 50% of our revenues for Hawai‘iʻs 51 public libraries.
- The 8,000 SF warehouse that we currently rent is bursting at the seams!
- Industrial warehouse space in Honolulu is quickly disappearing and the time is now to secure a location for a stable future.
