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.”

Please join the Kahuku Public and School Library for a special evening dedicated to highlighting student’s voices.

The Kahuku High School English Language Arts teacher Ms. Karin Hansen Del-Rey and her freshman students will present their WHO I AM project to family, friends, and the general public. Students were tasked with exploring identity through the lens of sociological, cultural, geographical, historical contexts to come up with their own unique sense of self within the larger community of Ko’olauloa.

Come out to learn more from the perspective of today’s youth and see the future generation express themselves in their own words.
