Welcome to the Hawaii Kai Public Library! Designed by architect Harold T. Kurisu, our library opened on Dec. 1, 1973. For nearly 30 years, Hawaii Kai Lions and Nagoya Lions provide unique support – monetary donations and cultural artifacts from Japan. On Aug. 22, 2013, the Friends of Hawaii Kai Public Library opened the new Hawaii Kai community book store.
