About

Welcome to the Laupahoehoe Public and School Library! Designed by Richard S. Matsunaga and Associates, we opened in 1973 but earthquake damage closed us for nearly a year. We reopened in 1974 with a state-of-the-art video studio, darkroom, and Audiovisual Production Center. We are one of the few Hawaii Island libraries to offer a meeting room for public use.

Upcoming Events

Children are invited to join the After School Coloring Club. Every weekday (Monday through Friday), from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., participants will be able to make printed clip art for coloring. All supplies will be provided. Young children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver. This program will not be held on State holidays.

All programs are subject to change. If you require an auxiliary aid or accommodation due to a disability, please contact the library at least 7 days before the program date.

Futuristic music appreciation night. 

Eat food, listen to microtonal masters and hangout!

Microtonality – our music scale has 12 tones.  Microtonalists divide the scale into additional notes giving them extra harmonies.   Franis Engel will play recordings of famous and infamous microtonalists.  She will present how microtonality works, why it sounds so strange, and how to appreciate new harmonies.

Hear futuristic music that you never imagined. We will play the arrangers game too! http://www.franis.org/out4improv

All community members are welcome to join us in these first steps toward creating a lasting seed library at Laupahoehoe Public Library.  The class will build upon the knowledge gained in the Seed Saving Workshop on July 16th.

Participants will learn about seed sharing systems including seed share stations, seed circles, seed exchanges and seed libraries.  We will discuss some of the challenges involved in sharing seed and some strategies to make seed sharing more effective.  The event will serve as a first step towards building a seed library.  All ages are welcome to join this unique workshop.
