About

Welcome to the Ewa Beach Public & School Library! Designed by Robert M. Matsushita and Associates, Inc., our library opened on Aug. 28, 1971 on the James Campbell High School campus. Laptop computers were installed in 2012 to create the first computer lab in the Library System. Our atrium features “Pupu Aʻo Ewa,” a distinctive copper and bronze sculpture by the late Bumpei Akaji.
