About

Welcome to the Hilo Public Library! Our library is the largest library on Hawaii Island and opened on Jan. 20, 1951. The Naha, one of two historic stones located in front of the library, is believed to be what King Kamehameha lifted to affirm the prophecy that he would unite the Hawaiian Islands. Well-known Hawaii Island artist Henry Bianchini’s donated sculpture “Involuntary Journey” is located in the library’s atrium.
