Tour Manoa Heritage Center

Join the Hawaii Library Association Hawaiian Section for a tour of Manoa Heritage Center and Cooke Library

Saturday, Oct. 30

9 - 11:30 a.m.

Adults: $7 adults; Seniors/Military: $4; Children: free

Most of the tour takes place outdoors in the garden of MHC, where we will view native and Polynesian introduced plants and view Kuka`o`o Heiau. Following the garden tour, we will enter the house, Kuali`i, for a special tour of the library with owner Sam Cooke. Participants should be prepared for walking over rough garden paths and bring rain and sun protection. The tour is appropriate for children over 10. Following the tour, we will gather for lunch on your own at Wai‘oli Tea Room. Because there is limited parking at MHC, we will gather at Manoa District Park and carpool.

RSVP by Oct. 27 to Gwen Sinclair, gsinclai [at] hawaii [dot] edu or 956-2549. Please indicate the number of participants and whether you would like to join the group for lunch afterward.
