will donate a portion of the sale to help us put books on the shelves of The Aloha Community Library
a library that is entirely supported through volunteer efforts. You can purchase items on line or at any store around the country.
This donation opportunity will run from December 14, 2013 to December 19, 2013. Thanks in advance for your support!
Aloha Library’s second annual ‘Book-tique’ sale is slated to open in the library on December 7th. The sale will run through December 21st, during library open hours.
The library will be selling handmade items crafted by library volunteers and some very nice ‘gently’ used books, at extremely reasonable prices. Last year’s ‘Book-tique’ was a big success.
Among the items being offered are gift baskets, crocheted hats, bags and scarves and beaded lanyards. Come and see all of the other things made by our ‘crafty’ volunteers to raise money for the Aloha Community library.
Check out our books and DVD’s and do your last minute holiday shopping at the same time!
We will be holding our Annual Membership meeting on Sunday, October 20, 2013 from 2:00-2:30pm. It will be held in the recently vacated Blockbuster Video which is in the same complex as our Aloha Community Library facility. It is adjacent to the Dairy Queen restaurant and abuts Farmington Rd. The address is 17555 SW Farmington Rd. To get the complete announcement, please download the file here.
Immediately following this, we will be having a community-wide open house in the same facility. This facility has been generously provided for our use for this one time event. In the near future, it will be torn down and replaced by a new business. This is a one-time opportunity!
Thanks to an anonymous donation, a musical group called Whistlin’ Ruffas will be performing that afternoon as well. We have some special speakers lined up to make some special announcements at 3pm, so if your time is limited, be sure and drop by at that time. We will have information about future library events, ability to register for library cards for new patrons and information on becoming a member of the Association.
If you haven’t checked out our newsletter, you can download it on the front page (see NEWSLETTER button on the right hand side below VOLUNTEER). It has been pulled together by an amazing group of volunteers (Christina Lawton, Jackie Ortega and Board Secretary Amy Grant). If you are a card holder in the library (and have provided us your email address or a registered Association member, you should also be receiving this as an email beginning this week. The newsletter team has setup an independent email address to get feedback or suggestions so be sure and use that to let us know what you think! It is listed at the bottom of the file!
Parents, kids come to the Library, every Saturday in November and December, from 10 – 11 am to learn how to play Crazy Machines.
The Aloha Community Library IT Department will present a workshop on the computer game Crazy Machines. The game that teaches how to build machines using: steam engines, gears, pulleys, electric motors and electrical circuits. There are hundreds of experiments. Each one is a puzzle that requires placing the machine parts in just right location to make the completed machine accomplish the task. Aloha Library’s own “Mad Scientist” and IT Leader Gene Allison will be on hand to do a demonstration and be the coach for new participants in this wonderful computer program designed to instill curiosity and science learning in young people (as well as those who are young at heart!).

The Aloha Community Library began our library operations last year on September 22, 2012. Thanks to the outpouring of community and volunteer support, we are now open 29 hours per week with nearly 10,000 items in our collection. We have weekly story-time programs, as well as special events for teens and adults. We provide public internet access on 6 workstations plus WiFi. Please help us celebrate at our Family Birthday Celebration on Saturday, September 14 from 2:00-4:00pm. We’ll be enjoying birthday cake, cotton candy, games and face-painting.
In honor of our birthday and as a gift to our borrowers, the Aloha Community Library is declaring a fines amnesty for all overdue library materials for the month of September. We want you to come back and check out more materials and help us celebrate our first birthday!
