In Hawaiian, the phrase makana akamai means the gift of knowledge. Through the Makana Akamai program, you can donate books or media to a favorite library branch.
It’s a wonderful way to celebrate a birthday, 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.
