About

Welcome to the Kahului Public Library! Designed by Noboru Kobayashi, our library opened on Feb. 9, 1963. Native Hawaiian plants are featured in our yard and courtyard . We serve as the regional library and Federal Depository for Maui, offering enriching programs for all ages year-round.

Upcoming Events

Cartoon caterpillar reading a book

Children and their parents are welcome to join us for books, songs, rhymes, and movement designed to encourage early literacy and a love of reading. This program is best suited for preschool children, but older children are also welcome! (Tip: Stick around afterwards for a craft project! Or you may also feel welcome to join us for just the craft, which will be available starting at 11:00 am until the end of the day or until supplies run out.)

All programs are subject to change. If you require an auxiliary aid or accommodation due to a disability, please contact the library at least 7 days before the program date.

Family Movie Night

Join the Kahului Public Library throughout the month of September for Super Hero Movie Nights on Tuesdays at 5:30 pm.

What is a super hero?  Someone who manifests a super-ability or superpower and generally acts heroically-is brave and self-sacrificing. In fact, the dictionary that is a part of Microsoft Word has as an alternate definition of hero (not a superhero, mind you, but a plain hero): A person “with superhuman powers.” And Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary defines a hero as “a mythological or legendary figure often of divine descent endowed with great strength or ability.” The use of masks or costumes is not a prerequisite for superhero-dom according to this definition.

The audience will be able to watch the following PG-13 movies on September 4:  Wonder Woman, September 11: Iron Man 3, September 18: Thor Ragnarok, and September 25:  Spider-Man Homecoming.

All programs are subject to change. If you require an auxiliary aid or accommodation due to a disability, please contact the library at least 7 days before the program date.

Muolaulani hula dancers

Mu‘olaulani is a contemporary Hawaiian dance company, led by Artistic Director and Kumu Hula Michael Pili Pang. The performers have been trained through the dance school Halau Hula No’eau in the style called hula ku’i – a descriptive dance style which blends traditional hula with western idioms. The group brings to the stage Hawaiian rituals, myths, and legends with a contemporary flair, to tell the stories of Hawaii and its rich culture.

This 45-minute program is recommended for ages 5 and older. Young children must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.

Sponsored by the Maui Friends of the Library. This is a production of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Outreach College’s Statewide Cultural Extension Program with additional funding and support provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, and the University of Hawaii.

All programs are subject to change. If you require an auxiliary aid or accommodation due to a disability, please contact the library at least 7 days before the program date.
