Everything you need, Graham Builders Gives Library a Boost When Manoa Elementary School’s library underwent changes that necessitated the use of upper shelves, librarian Imelda Amano engaged students in a contest to build stepstools. She consulted with Evan Fujimoto, president of Graham Builders, who gave the students guidelines for developing their designs. Nearly 40 sixth-graders took part in the project and submitted a total of 25 drawings. Graham Builders then scored the designs and carpenter James Jonas spent about six hours hand-crafting the top two stools. In May, Amano got two new stepstools without touching her library budget, the kids got to see their ideas become reality and Graham Builders was able to use its skills and resources to contribute to the community. Manoa Elementary students partnered with Graham Builders to design and build stepstools. Showing off their winning stools with librarian Imelda Amano are, from left, sixth-graders Tessa Nishida, Shaun Slade and Jared Nonaka. Photo courtesy Graham Builders when you need it!
