About

Welcome to the Honokaa Public Library! Our small 3,040-sq. ft. plantation-style building was built in 1936 and opened on June 5, 1937. One treasure in our collection is a photocopy of the original ships’ logs that brought Portuguese immigrants to Hawaii Island. Our library is the only place in the community that rents DVDs!

Come and join the fun of learning how to create a polymer clay Christmas ornament or jewelry pendant.  Something for everyone.  Keiki welcome if accompanied by an adult.  There will be several options of things to make and we will create them together with step-by-step instructions.  Easy and fun!  Get to know your crafting neighbors or learn something new just for the fun of it!

Shira is an Ahualoa resident who loves to create in many, varied ways.  She is looking forward to sharing the infinite possibilities of creating (and playing!) in clay with you, and having fun in the process! Come along and join the laughter, and unleash your creative spirit!

Yoga Kids

Please join us for this session for youth on mindfulness with Lillian Paiva of the Honokaa Ki-Aikido club.  During this session young people will be introduced to mindfulness as a tool not only in Aikido but in everyday life.

The Honokaa Ki-Aikido club has been in existence since 1955.  We practice Shinshin-Toitsu Aikido which means “mind-body are one”.  The art is not about learning to overcome others, but learning how to overcome ourselves.  We train to remain calm in all situations and to be aware of all that is around us.   To live our life with compassion and self-respect.

Lillian Paiva is the Head Instructor of Honokaa-Ki Aikido.  She has been training for over 25 years.
