Visit to the Kona Library in Hawaii

Last week, when I was on the Big Island of Hawaii, I stopped in at the Kona Public Library to visit my friend Denise Stromberg. We met twelve years ago on my first visit to Kona. (I visit Kona every three years when my husband Art attends a conference there.) At that time she was the children’s librarian. Now she is the branch manager. We had a nice chat, caught up on news and then visited the children’s room and met Jen, the new children’s librarian. I saw that she has updated the children’s room with a reading nook with a comfy sofa for snuggling up with a book. When I left a boy was happily stretched out on the sofa and absorbed in a book.
I was also happy to discover that the Hawaii State Public Library system has 113 of my books in their libraries. Jen told me that the Kona library will soon be getting Hatching Chicks in Room 6. Hurray!
The bulletin board in the children's room featured poems in celebration of Poetry Month.
