FLH fundraisers provide for programs and support at Hawaii’s 51 public libraries that are not provided for in the regular state budget. The state budget does not provide for any programs at the libraries. FLH and its sponsors fund statewide programming such as the Summer, Spring, and Fall Reading Programs, National Library Week, Honolulu Theatre for Youth library tours, the purchase of books and other materials to enhance library collections, the Librarian of the Year and Excellence in Service awards, and grants to advance technology and library services throughout the system.
