The new library is located just across the parking lot from our current library, at 17455 SW Farmington Road (between Aloha Animal Medical Center and US World Class Taekwondo).  Grand re-opening festivities will begin at 10am on Saturday, April 12.  A storybook character parade begins at 10am at the current library and ends at the new library.  All children are welcome to join us along with at least one adult.  All are welcome to stay for a special storytime right after the parade.  The program continues at 11am with a group of very special speakers to help us celebrate this landmark occasion.  Join us for goodies and tour the library!

An Open Letter to Our Patrons, Supporters and Volunteers…

Friends, there is so much I love about the Aloha Community Library Association!

This is an association seeking to share with and serve those in our community.  The effectiveness of your library’s mission in the coming months depends on your generosity and dedication. Right now and through October 20, your generosity to step up and support the library with your monetary gifts will be matched through an anonymous gift of $10,000. This matching campaign will ensure the hiring of paid staff allowing the library to grow in the ways necessary to become part of the WCCLS.  Please help us “Open this gift of $10,000”.    As of today, we have raised roughly 1/2 have that amount and have passed the $5,000 mark.

Aloha Library Announces New and Expanded Hours!

October 2, 2013:   The Aloha Community Library Association announced today that their hours of operation are expanding effective today to 37 hours per week from the previous schedule of only 29 hours week.  This is a reflection of the expanding interest and community support of the library and its ability to sufficiently staff library hours.  Currently, 2-3 trained volunteers are available for each hour of operation.  The new hours are posted on the website home page and are included graphically below.  We are adding additional hours to each day we have been open previously so that every day we are open from 10am to 8pm except Saturday when we close at 5pm.  Storytime continues to be offered each Wednesday morning from 10:30-11:30am.
