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!
