Repairs Close Library Bookstore

Bookworms will have to wriggle elsewhere for awhile, as the Friends of Kaneohe Library bookstore closed March 6 for renovations “until further notice.”

According to Diane Santiago of the Friends, the library’s busy basement shop will undergo painting, sealing of the floor, installation of Plexiglas, sanding and painting of metal bookcases, replacement of termite-eaten bookcases, plus inventory, restocking shelves and overall cleaning.

She also asks that donors wait until the work is completed to bring in more materials.

The Friends are now in their 51st year of supporting library programs, furnishings and reading materials.

The Friends of Kailua Library bookstore, meanwhile, is open from 10 a.m. to noon Monday, Wednesday and Friday; 1-7 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday; and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday. Call 392-1824.
