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.

therapy dogs bailey and brownie

Read to the registered therapy dogs of K9 Hawaii.  All the dogs that participate are specially trained and can help kids practice reading aloud without judgment.  Recent research has shown that reading to therapy dogs can boost reading skills in children, as well as help with emotional and social skills. If you want a comfortable setting to practice your reading fluency, reading comprehension, or comfort with canines in general, this is the event for you.

A sign-up sheet for 15 minute sessions with a dog will be posted on the library’s meeting room door the day of the visit at 2:30 p.m.

tomb raider

This month for movie night, Aiea Library will be showing the new Tomb Raider movie.  Here is the description of the movie from Amazon.com:  Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) is the independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who mysteriously vanished when she was a teen. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Against her father’s final wishes, Lara leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island. Her mission will not be easy; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Against all odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit, she must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, she could earn the name Tomb Raider.  This movie is  135 minutes long and is rated PG-13.
