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.

Electro-acoustic composer Peter Swanzy

Music made from electronic sounds is less than 100 years old.  Electronic music began in a crude form based on the sounds of trains, radio waves, and by other hair-raising methods. Learn about the historical impact of electronic music in the early and mid-Twentieth Century, movements in art, and the pursuit of new sounds with Maui’s own electro-acoustic composer and media educator Peter Swanzy.

This one-hour program is co-sponsored by Ebb & Flow Arts and is suitable for teens and adults.
