This event is free, with all materials being provided. There will be free cake and refreshments.

There will be craft items, including handmade cards, bookmarks, Post-Its, decorative tables, boxes and plants for sale.

The Hanapepe Public Library, which opened its doors on Feb. 9, 1950, serves the Westside community from its 3,600-square-foot building designed by Guy N. Rothwell and Edmund Adams.

The original building was expanded by 1,750 square feet, and a 2,210-square-foot meeting room designed by Yamasato, Fujiwara, Aoki & Associates was added in 2009.

The craft fair is being sponsored by the Friends of the Hanapepe Public Library and the Friends of the Library of Hawaii.
