About

Welcome to the Liliha Public Library! Designed by Steven Oyakawa, a former student of Frank Lloyd Wright, our library opened on Dec. 12, 1966. Our uniquely-built library features skylights, rounded corners, and generous allotments of space for all parts of the building to create an ideal mid-sized library. Liliha Public Library is the only library in HSPLS with roof-top parking.
