About

Welcome to the Waimanalo Public and School Library! Designed by Ernest H. Hara and Associates, our library  opened on Feb. 25, 1978. We are located on the campus of Waimanalo Elementary and Intermediate School. More than half of Waimanalo’s current residents and library patrons are of Hawaiian or part-Hawaiian descent.

Upcoming Events

Spot the Ant, Stop the Ant

The little fire ant (LFA) is a new, invasive, stinging ant that will spread across the Hawaiian Islands if we don’t take action now. LFA infest yards, houses, farms, and forests. Their powerful stings harm people and wildlife. LFA sting the eyes of pets, leading to blindness. LFA damage crops, food production, and the economy everywhere.

Our library is partnering with the Oahu Invasive Species Committee (OISC) to provide FREE test kits to the community, while supplies last. Residents may obtain a test kit during the library’s business hours. The kits will include a self-addressed stamped envelope. Patrons may submit their samples directly to the Hawaii Department of Agriculture.
