We are kicking off this summer's reading program in a big way with Kahana Hula and a Family Luau. Tiare Kahana and friends with share the Aloha Spirit with all of us. Here's what Tiare says at her website about the Aloha Spirit.

The Aloha Spirit is what guides Tiare and Kahana Hula. These are traits of character than express the charm, warmth and sincerity of Hawaii's people.

  • Aloha is more than a word of greeting, farewell or salutation.
  • Aloha means mutual regard and affection and extends warmth in caring with no obligation in return.
  • Aloha is the essence of relationships in which each person is important to every other person for collective existence.
  • Aloha means to hear what is not said, to see what cannot be seen and to know the unknowable.
So as we get ready to MAKE A SPLASH AND READ all summer long, let's start off by sharing in the Aloha Spirit at the Richmond Memorial Library. We'll start registering for summer programs at 6:00 and the performers hit the stage at 6:30. Don't forget to wear your Hawaiian shirts or dresses and be ready to share in a sno-cone.
