About

Welcome to the Waialua Public Library! Built by Isamu Abe Construction, our current library is the smallest public library on Oahu. In 1997, the Public Library Association (division of American Library Association) honored it as the “Best Small/Rural Library in America.” In 2013, our library celebrated its 85th Anniversary in grand-style.
