About

Welcome to the Kailua-Kona Public Library! Designed by architect George Iwasaki, our library opened on a leap day – Feb. 29, 1992. It is the second largest and second busiest library on Hawaii Island. We have a drive-through bookdrop and won an exemplary architectural design award from the Commission on Persons with Disabilities.


Upcoming events at this branch

Join Ms. Jen the Kids’ Librarian in February for an opportunity to serve our community some aloha for Lā Aloha (Valentine’s Day).

Visit the Children’s Room February 1-10 to participate in a special drop-in craft. We’ll be creating valentines for the local kūpuna (elders) residing at the nearby Regency at Hualālai. Our goal is 102 valentines, one for every resident.

Those who contribute a valentine will get a little goodie for their time and effort, while supplies last.

Mahalo nui to the Friends of the Libraries, Kona (F.O.L.K.) for sponsoring this program!
