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.


Upcoming events at this branch

Book Bingo Grid

Throughout the month, checkout and read books that have the themes listed in the boxes to complete a full row, column, or diagonal on your card. Each line of BINGO is an entry to win the grand prize in a drawing held on the first Thursday of the following month. On the back of the BINGO card, list the titles you have read and which boxes they fulfill. The more books you read, the more cards you can complete; the more chances you have to win!

This program is held at Aiea Public Library only. Bingo cards available at the Information desk.
