About

Welcome to the Hanapepe Public Library! Designed by architects Guy N. Rothwell and Edmund Abrams, our library opened on Feb. 9, 1950. Our library celebrated 60 years of service and dedicated its new auditorium on Mar. 11, 2010. A photovoltaic solar system installed in 2011 helps our library and HSPLS save money on utility bills.

Upcoming Events

Spot the Ant, Stop the Ant

The little fire ant (LFA) is a new, invasive, stinging ant that will spread across the Hawaiian Islands if we don’t take action now. LFA infest yards, houses, farms, and forests. Their powerful stings harm people and wildlife. LFA sting the eyes of pets, leading to blindness. LFA damage crops, food production, and the economy everywhere.

Our library is partnering with the Kauai Invasive Species Committee (KISC) to provide FREE test kits to the community, while supplies last. Residents may obtain a test kit during the library’s business hours. The kits will include a self-addressed stamped envelope. Patrons may submit their samples directly to the Hawaii Department of Agriculture.
