Here’s how you can help
support our libraries, too!
There are many ways you can be a part of helping our Maui County Public Libraries.
Join us! Become a Member of Maui Friends of the library and continue supporting Maui County Libraries with your tax-deductible donation.
Buy books, CD, DVDs at our bookstores. Discover previously loved out-of-print treasures, new Hawaiiana books by local authors, puzzles, music, DVDs and more, for a fraction of retail pricing.
Our bookstores are supported by your generous donation of books, CDs, DVDs, and puzzles. Here's how to donate.
The Maui Friends of the Library could not operate its used bookstores without our volunteers’ generous donation of their time.
Volunteers are needed at all three bookstore locations
How and Where to Donate Books
Donations are accepted at all bookstores during normal operating hours shown below.
The MFOL seeks the following items in good condition:
The MFOL cannot use moldy or water damaged books, VHS tapes, or encyclopedia sets.
For very large donations, please contact John Tryggestad at (808) 268-2976.
Volunteers are needed at all three bookstore locations.
Maui Friends of the Library Volunteers Vikashni Hoffman, Jeanne Lindquist, and Cynthia Delanty show off the bright new book carts for Moloka‘i Library, which help make their job of shelving & re-shelving books a bit easier and cheerier each day!
These carts – as well as other pieces of equipment and supplies – are funded for the libraries through the efforts of Maui Friends of the Library ... and your purchases in our stores.
Aside from helping the libraries, MFOL wants to make books accessible and affordable to everyone on Maui. Our three stores can always use more volunteers, so if you have three or four hours a week available, please stop in and sign up for a shift. Just a few hours each week can help makeabig difference in our Maui Nui community!
Help is needed sorting and shelving books, assisting patrons, and operating the cash register. Most needed are volunteers who can work a morning, afternoon, or evening (Kahului) shift one day a week on an ongoing basis.
One major perk of volunteering is getting first crack at the newly donated books!
