About

Welcome to the Mililani Public Library! Located on the red plains of Central Oʻahu, our library opened on Oct. 27, 1984 on land donated by Mililani Town, Inc. Our library has a quiet room for study and reference work. Our library’s three most attractive features are the murals designed by the late international master artist Hon-Chew Hee: two are carved in red Indian granite and depict The Golden Days of Hawaii, and the largest mural – The Poi Bowl – is carved in green Taiwanese marble.

Hand Bells

Echo! Gyro! Martellato! Shake! No, this isn’t the latest dance craze, but some of the ringing techniques used by handbell ringers. Handbells are derived from the tower bells of England. “Change ringers” needed a way of practicing their melodies without disturbing the entire town, and so, handbells were developed. Soon, the ringing of handbells became its own art form. Now there are handbell ensembles throughout the world, and we are lucky to have the local ensemble Mele Mai Paki Lima to help us ring in the holiday season!
