About

Welcome to the Wahiawa Public Library! Designed by Arthur Kohara and built by Wahiawa Builders, our current library building opened on July 15, 1965. Wahiawa Public Library is the oldest library on Oahu; in 2015 it celebrated 75 years of service. As an important community information node, literacy, lifelong learning, and a love of reading remain vital to our library’s mission.

Upcoming Events

CALLING ALL HARRY POTTER FANS!! In honor of Harry Potter’s birthday on July 31, Wahiawa Public Library will host an hour of Harry Potter-themed trivia. Come dressed in your finest wizarding outfit and be prepared to be sorted into one of four Hogwarts houses–Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Gryffindor–for trivia teams! Butterbeer and other goodies will be provided by the library. Trivia runs from 4:00p.m. until 5:00p.m. after which the library will feature a wizard-themed movie the whole family can enjoy. Trivia is recommended for ages 12+ or for those who have read the entire Harry Potter series as trivia will at times prove difficult for our youngest muggles, though we encourage families to attend. Capacity is limited to 40 people for trivia, so reservations are required (no reservations required for the 5:00p.m. movie). Please call the library at 808-622-6345 to reserve your spot!

An inconvenient sequel

The Library hosts a movie on the last Tuesday of the month at 5:00 p.m. in our meeting room. Program is suitable for all ages. Young children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.
