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.

Calling all Hawaii residents! Blood Bank of Hawai‘i is urging Hawai‘i residents to show they are ‘Tough Enough’ to save lives this winter by donating blood at one of over 70 blood drives on O‘ahu this December.  Anyone who donates blood during the drive will receive a little something special from the library and Blood Bank sponsors.

Blood donations are especially needed over the winter vacation months. Blood Bank of Hawai‘i depends on 200 volunteer donors a day to provide lifesaving blood for various purposes such as surgery, trauma victims, delivering mothers, cancer treatments and other life-saving procedures.

Blood Bank of Hawai‘i holds drives every single day across the state, and the Young Street Donor Center (1907 Young St) is also open seven days a week. To find a drive near you, go to bloodbanktough.org or call Aiea Library (808) 483-7333.

4 Flowers

!!  Ongoing Enrollment  !!

This free program encourages you to read 1,000 books with your child before he or she enters Kindergarten. One of the best ways to encourage learning is to spend time sharing books every day. Reading together helps develop important pre-reading skills that provide a solid reading foundation – a key to school and learning success. Plus, sharing stories together is fun!

Stop by Aiea Public Library to enroll and pick up your reading log folder. Return to the branch after each hundred books read for a sticker and your next recording sheet. Happy Reading!
