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.

An inconvenient sequel

A new year brings new movies to Ewa Beach Public & School Library. Our first film will be Midnight Sun. 17-year-old Katie Price has been sheltered since childhood with a rare disease that makes even the smallest amount of sunlight deadly. During the day she is housebound, but after nightfall, Katie can venture out to the local train station and play her guitar for travelers. One night, her dreams come true when she’s noticed by Charlie, whom she has secretly admired for years, and decides to hide her condition from him as the two embark on a uniquely powerful romance over one nearly perfect summer.

The film is rated PG-13. Program is subject to change without notice. If you require an auxiliary aid or accommodation due to a disability, please contact the library at least 7 days before the program date.

He will be painting live every Monday until the project is finished. Upon completion, the artwork will be prominently displayed in the library.
