An “Introduction to Hawaiian Words,” a free program, will be presented at Liliha Public Library on Thursday, December 11 at 6 p.m. in the Meeting Room.
Jack Christensen, co-founder of The Program To Preserve Hawaiian Place Names, will conduct this one-hour introductory session that will explain the basics of Hawaiian word structure, spelling, and pronunciation. The session, which is offered on the first Thursday of the month at the Library, is said to be the easiest and fastest way to learn how to cope with saying and writing individual Hawaiian words.
The Program To Preserve Hawaiian Place Names, a public service project, was established in 1974. Call the Library as soon as possible if a sign language interpreter or other special accommodation is needed.
