About

Welcome to the Aina Haina Public Library! Designed by architect Edward Aotani, our library opened on Oct. 18, 1962. A senior services librarian was added in 2008 to meet the needs of an aging community. In 2011, our library became the first public library on Oʻahu to install a photovoltaic solar system.
