HONOLULU (KHNL) - More than $900,000 in state funds will be used to improve Hawaii's public libraries on Oahu, Maui and Lanai.
At the Kahului Public Library on Maui, $400,000 will cover the design and construction to replace the library's air-conditioning units which are more than 20 years old.
The Lanai Public and School Library will also get new air conditioning units that will cost $200,000.
Kahuku and Waimanalo Public and School libraries on Oahu will receive more than $300,000 in reroof improvements. Due to aging and weathering, the existing roofs leak in many areas and are beyond repair. Both libraries were last reroofed more than 20 years ago.
