Happy Birthday, Aloha Library!

Have you heard? The Aloha Community Library is turning five! A group of generous library supporters is giving us a huge birthday present – a dollar for dollar match if we raise $15,000 by September 30! Just think. We could raise $30,000 (or more) by the end of this month! But we can only do it with your help.
