Welcome to the Friends of the North Shore Library at Princeville

ALOHA AND MAHALO NUI for your interest.

We are dedicated to serving the North Shore of Kauai through direct support of the library and its staff. Join our Board.


The Board of Directors manages the affairs of the corporation.  It is a 15 member board that meets every other month throughout the year to conduct its business.  In partnership with the branch librarian, the Board of Directors sets a budget, establishes goals and initiates projects in support of the Library

Anyone willing to attend bimonthly meetings, able to lead and participate in meeting the board’s goals, its projects activities, and is fully committed to the ongoing improvement of the Library can serve on the board.

At this time, we are searching for qualified candidates to serve on the 2015 Friends Board of Directors.  We have five positions to fill.

Serving on the board of directors is a fun and fulfilling way to share your expertise and life experiences and support the Princeville Public Library.

Please join us as a member of the 2015 board.  Contact Laura McConnell, president@princeville.com or by telephone at 808-828-6188.

Friends of the North Shore Library at Princeville supports the library through fundraising, such as the quarterly used book sales, Friends membership, and private donations.  Money raised through the Friends’ fundraising efforts results in additional books, magazines, CDs, and DVDs for checkout at the library.  Additionally, Friends’ funding supports quality    programming and community events.
