About

Welcome to the Waipahu Public Library! Library services in Waipahu began as early as 1952 with a library on Farrington Highway. Our current library opened at a new facility located next to the Waipahu Civic Center on Mar. 18, 1996. Designed by Mitsunaga and Associates, our library features Oahu’s only drive-thru window and exclusive reading room for teens.

Upcoming Events

Giving Back with Ronald McDonald logo

CELEBRATE THE 2017 CHILDREN’S SUMMER READING PROGRAM!

This educational program will inspire children to give back to the community and show the magic in helping others. Ronald McDonald® will use a creative mix of music, magic, skits and games to reinforce the value of giving back and the enjoyment that comes from it. Children will learn to share their talents, time and gifts and are encouraged to share the things they are good at or are interested in. This 40-minute program is suitable for ages 3 to 8. Young children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.

Sponsored by McDonald’s® Restaurants of Hawai‘i.
