From their website:
"The Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i (FLH) is pleased to announce the 70th Annual Booksale, sponsored by Hawai‘i State Federal Credit Union (HSFCU), from July 15 - July 23, 2017 at the McKinley High School Cafeteria. At Hawai‘i’s largest used booksale, you can choose from over 150,000 books in every category imaginable!
Since 1947, the FLH Annual Sale has invited Hawai‘i residents to browse selections of new and used, out-of-print and bestselling books and media. After 70 years, the sale is an island tradition and each summer thousands readers of all ages and backgrounds converge on the McKinley High School cafeteria for 11 days of bargains and a selection of titles to rival any bookstore.
Encompassing much more than books, the booksale will feature a selection of CDs, DVDs, comics and manga, and many more hard-to-find items. A popular section of the sale is the eclectic selection of donated ART. There is modern art, prints from local artists, lithographs, and sculpture.
A catalogue of FLH’s rare and collectible books will be open for inspection at the sale. All books in the catalogue are available for purchase, including rare Hawaiiana titles.
On opening weekend, Saturday and Sunday, June 18 and 19, look for authors from the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators in the grey tent in front of the cafeteria. They will be selling and signing their brand new children’s books, with a portion of sales going to support Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i."

I'm a homeschooling mom of three, enjoying our time in Hawaii and hoping to share some of that experience with you, including ideas, reviews, resources, and information.
