A Library of Information About Kava 
The Kava Library is a depository of information about Kava, a botanical plant that has been used by islanders for 1000 of years for a variety of purposes.  It is also home to the The Kava Library Newsletter.   The Kava Library is going through a make over right now and we have a new administrator, Nick.  The purpose of library is twofold:

The Kava Library

The FDA has not approved Kava for any particular purpose.  The statements on this Website have not been evaluated or approved by the FDA.  This product has not been approved by the FDA to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.   
As the administrator of this site, I am in charge of adding new information and keeping this site up to date.  We have recently added the Kavas of the World section which has content on Kavas from Fiji, Vanuatu, Tonga, etc. to complement our section on Hawaiian Kava. We are also publishing a consumer guide that sorts and displays Kava offerings from various vendors around the world. We hope these lists help you make an informed kava buying decision. We have a lot of work yet to do as we accumulate content and publish it. We will keep you informed as we progress. We urge all Kava Vendors, Kava Scientists, and other members of the kava community to send us any content you deem relevant. You can submit content or contact me here.
 About the Library
The Kava Library is fully funded by private donations. These donations are not from any parties involved with growing or distributing kava.  There are also many contributors to the Kava Library who supply us with content. For now, we will call them “The Friends of the Kava Library”. We would like to publicly thank Chris Allen of Gourmet Hawaiian Kava who helped us compile some of the original content related to Hawaiian Kava which was posted here several years ago. He is a friend of The Kava Library as well as a Kava Farmer and Kava Historian.
