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.

Mobile phone and laptop computer with security warnings

Do you practice good cyber hygiene?

Throughout October, cyber security professionals from the International Security Consortium (ISC) will be visiting public libraries statewide to share best practices on keeping you and your identity safe on the Internet.

At this one-hour presentation, a cyber expert will discuss malware protection, passwords, wifi usage, online shopping and banking, scams, safe email habits, phishing, data backup, and social media. This program will also include a question & answer session.

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.
