About

Welcome to the Kapaa Public Library! Our library, which opened on Mar. 12, 1955, celebrated 60 years of service in 2015. It serves the largest population center on Kauai and is one of two oceanfront public libraries in Hawaii. Our library has a “small-town” atmosphere with its cozy building but also offers the latest technology, including free Wi-Fi.

Storyteller Dave Del Rocco

IN CELEBRATION OF THE 2017 SUMMER READING PROGRAM!

Storyteller Dave Del Rocco will share folktales from around the globe, including Laos, Hawaii, Italy, Africa, the Philippines, and more. Dave is a former Children’s Librarian with the Hawaii State Public Library System and has translated several children’s books into Hawaiian for the Dept. of Education’s immersion program. This 45-minute program is suitable for all ages. Young children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i, Hawaii State Federal Credit Union, Meadow Gold Dairies, Hawaiian Electric Companies, HMS Host, Hansen Distribution Group, Roberts Hawaii, Mitsunaga & Associates, Aloha United Way, and the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation. This is a production of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Outreach College’s Statewide Cultural Extension Program with additional funding and support provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, and the University of Hawaii.

Program schedule is subject to change. Contact the library 15 days in advance to request a sign language interpreter or if special accommodations are needed.

The word spelled out with Scrabble pieces.

The Better Business Bureau Foundation of Hawaiʻi  invites you to join us for a free, one hour presentation to learn about:

  • The Top Scams in Hawaiʻi
  • Tricks that Scammers Use
  • How to Protect Yourself

Learn how not to become a victim of identity theft, which is, according the U.S. Justice Department, a “crime in which someone wrongfully obtains and uses another person’s personal data in some way that involves fraud or deception, typically for economic gain.”

This program is recommended for older adults 50 and older, who are the most vulnerable because they are not as tech savvy as younger generations. They are exploited as result, by online and phone scammers here and abroad.
