About

Welcome to the Aiea Public Library! Designed by architect Glenn Miura of CDS International and built on the site of the former Aiea Sugar Mill, our library opened on July 19, 2014. Our $10.4 million library replaces the original library building at 99-143 Moanalua Road. It includes features to reduce electricity costs such as a high-efficiency air-conditioning system and photovoltaic solar panels. In August 2014, Aiea Public Library was awarded the coveted Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certification.

Muolaulani hula dancers

Muolaulani is a contemporary Hawaiian dance company showcasing hula at its highest art form. They are noted for their innovative presentations. Artistic Director and Kumu Hula Michael Pili Pang brings to the stage Hawaiian rituals, myths, and legends with a contemporary flair, to tell the stories of Hawai’i and its rich culture. Muolaulani performers have been trained through the dance school Halau Hula No’eau in the style called hula ku’i – a descriptive dance style which blends traditional hula with western idioms.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i, Hawaii State Federal Credit Union, Meadow Gold Dairies, Hawaiian Electric Companies, HMS Host, Hansen Distribution Group, Roberts Hawaii, Mitsunaga & Associates, Aloha United Way, and the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation. This is a production of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Outreach College’s Statewide Cultural Extension Program with additional funding and support provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, Hawaii State Foundation on Culture  and the Arts, and the University of Hawaii.

Honolulu Theatre for Youth actors

BOO and HOO are happy, even though they always seem to get an Ouch! Like the time when they got their fingers trapped in the door and the time they fell and scraped their knees. One day BOO and HOO begin to feel other people’s OUCHES. So they set out on an adventure with their box of band aids to fix all the OUCHES in the world. Performance is sponsored by the Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i.

This 30-minute performance is suitable for ages 2 and older. Young children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.
