Unacceptable Behavior in the Learning Commons

For the past month, certain individuals have been wreaking havoc in the Learning Commons and behaving in ways unexpected of college-level students. Examples of this unacceptable behavior:

  • Acting extremely raucous – to the point that other students complain or leave the facility
  • Playing guitars and ukuleles
  • Throwing items across the room
  • Knocking furniture over
  • Standing on top of furniture
  • Blasting music
  • Despite numerous warnings, consistently eating food items that are prohibited in the facility (Library’s Food & Drink Policy)

Library staff have been struggling to correct these individuals’ behavior and to re-establish the Learning Commons as a resource for ALL, not just for a small minority that are dominating the space and making it unwelcoming to others. Please consider discussing the problem with your students and going over the rules below. We thank you for your assistance.

For more information, please read our Acceptable Behavior Policy.

Library Work Day in the Hālau Garden

On December 28, 2015 the Library volunteered for its first work day in the Hālau Garden. A big mahalo to Keahiahi Long and Frani Okamoto for organizing this worthwhile day. We learned so much and got quite the workout!

This event is just one way that the Library is continuing to strengthen our relationships with other departments/people on campus. This day was incredibly rewarding and really emphasized the “giving” aspect of the holiday season.

Thank You for Another Successful Discovery Fair!

IMG_0348 What a day! The Library hosted its annual $1 used book sale and Scholastic Book Fair during this year’s Discovery Fair on Saturday, November 7th. We also held our first crafting session in Kapunawai, which was a huge hit with children and parents! Keiki were able to make book page snowflakes, book page pinwheel ornaments, and leaf print art. Thank you to everyone who donated books and supported us by dropping by on the day of the event!

Annemarie Paikai, Hawaiian Pacific Resource Librarian

4vr6bndvh34uhspbpvllgtg3wccgkmvg-ptafxh6pkeq1zr2rcnjj9tdutbwmcee26cjg9y7hpdtfbcw1280-h658The Library is happy to welcome Annemarie Paikai to our team as our new Hawaiian Pacific Resource Librarian. We are excited to work with Annemarie and hope that you will help us to welcome her to the Leeward CC campus.

Annemarie Aweau Paikai has a B.A. in Hawaiian Studies from the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo and a Master’s in Library & Information Science (MLISc) from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. Annemarie has worked in a variety of archival and library repositories including the National Park Service, the Hula Preservation Society, the Hawaiian Historical Society, and the Hawaiʻi State Library’s Hawaiʻi and Pacific collection. She is currently serving as a board member for Nā Hawaiʻi ʻImi Loa, a professional organization dedicated to the advancement of Hawaiian knowledge systems, services, and research in the library and information science profession.

Annemarie, what do you hope to accomplish in your position here at Leeward CC?

I am thrilled to be joining the Leeward CC ʻohana! What excites me about this campus is the clear commitment to perpetuate a thriving academic and collaborative community. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to connect with the students, faculty, and staff here at Leeward. In an effort to contribute to the advancement of the educational goals of our Native Hawaiian students, I as the Hawaiʻi and Pacific Resource Librarian, hope to provide support and instruction in such a capacity that helps students have access to the services and resources that they need to succeed.   

Annemarie can be reached at 455-0390 or at aapaikai@hawaii.edu. I Mua!
