About

Welcome to the Kaneohe Public Library! Our library, which opened in its present location in January 1963, was built to serve a community that is both urban and rural. It also serves as a back-up reference and resource library for our Windward public libraries in Kahuku, Kailua, and Waimanalo. Weekly storytimes on Thursdays are often standing room only because children’s librarian Curt Fukumoto offers spectacular presentations of stories enhanced with puppets, shadow boxes, and music to entertain and educate preschoolers.

Upcoming Events

Honolulu Theatre for Youth actors

BOO and HOO are happy, even though they always seem to get an Ouch! Like the time when they got their fingers trapped in the door and the time they fell and scraped their knees. One day BOO and HOO begin to feel other people’s OUCHES. So they set out on an adventure with their box of band aids to fix all the OUCHES in the world. Performance is sponsored by the Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i.

This 30-minute performance is suitable for ages 2 and older. Young children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.
