About

Welcome to the Honokaa Public Library! Our small 3,040-sq. ft. plantation-style building was built in 1936 and opened on June 5, 1937. One treasure in our collection is a photocopy of the original ships’ logs that brought Portuguese immigrants to Hawaii Island. Our library is the only place in the community that rents DVDs!


Upcoming events at this branch

Story Time Tiger and Lion with Books

Stop by Honoka’a Public Library every Tuesday afternoon for a read!

Come join us as we read some fun-filled favorites that may take us on new journeys, teach us new morals, and build our imaginations.  As always, this event is free, and opened to ages 4-12.

If you need an auxiliary aid/service or other accommodation due to a disability, please contact the library at least 7 days prior to the program date.  We will make every attempt to fulfill all requests for accommodations.  All programs are subject to change.  For a list of upcoming library events, visit www.librarieshawaii.org/events

Text says LEGO Build Club. The word build is made of actual LEGOs with minifigures positioned as though building the word.

Every Wednesday at the Honoka`a Public Library we bring out thousands of LEGOs and say, “Let’s go!

Our LEGO Build Club challenges kids (and adults) of all ages to craft, create, and construct. Start off with one of our leveled challenge cards and stay for free play!

Challenge cards are organized by skill level and provide opportunities to work on problem solving and develop math and physics concepts, fine motor skills, inquiry skills, and hand-eye coordination. A challenge may be as simple as “build something with only four legos” or “build something that starts with the letter B” but may be as complex as “build a challenging maze and ask someone to solve it with a mini action figure – don’t forget dead ends!”

Recommended for ages 3 and up! Always free.
