Waikoloa Christmas Parade

We participated in the annual Waikoloa Christmas parade with not one, but two floats. We had a crew both inside and outside the vehicles, the ones walking handed out bookmarks along the route which have information about the bookmobile along with a map to the bookmobile.

Every year, we hear more and more people say they use the bookmobile and they love the resource here in the community. Our bookmobile is open 7 days a week from 9am – 4pm (5pm in the summer) and has a tremendous selection of free books for all ages. We also have two covered pergolas out front so anyone can sit and read or use our free wi-fi.
