From ancient times, Hawaiian people have had a vast body of oral literature, and a deep appreciation for the ability of stories to transmit tradition, culture, and knowledge. Once contact was made with the Western world, Hawaiian people eagerly added the written word to their traditions, publishing books and newspapers in abundance. By the 1830s, Hawai`i had the highest literacy rate in the world.

On Saturday, 11 January, people will have the opportunity to continue Hawai`i's tradition of literacy at the annual Friends of the Libraries, Kona (FOLK) book sale. The event will be held from 09:00 to 13:00 on the lanai of the Kailua-Kona Library.

Funds from sales help support the Kona libraries by funding such need as educational and entertainment programs, community summer reading programs, visiting authors, magazine subscriptions, CDs, DVDs and new book purchases.
