About

Welcome to the Kahuku Public & School Library! Designed by architect Dennis Toyomura, our library opened on Nov. 25, 1968 on Kahuku High and Intermediate School campus on Oahu’s North Shore. Our library serves students, faculty, residents of Kahuku, Kaaawa, Laie, Hauula, Sunset Beach, and “snowbirds” during winter. There is a real sense of community at our library where some patrons have come “full-circle.”
