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.

The in-person D&D programs previously scheduled at Kailua-Kona Public Library are now being offered online at Roll20.net, a popular virtual gaming tabletop! Teens 13 years and older, in grades 6-12, with all skill levels are welcome. All virtual gaming sessions are free. Attendance is limited to 6 teens per session.
No video/webcam is needed. To sign up, email the Young Adult Librarian. For general information about the virtual D&D programs, call the library at 327-4327.
Dungeons and Dragons, or D&D, has been played in some form or another for 45 years. Characters in Stranger Things and She-Ra talk about it, and celebrities like Vin Diesel, Terry Crews and Stephen Colbert play it. It’s a game of cooperative storytelling, led by the Dungeon Master who weaves a story filled with excitement and danger. Players craft characters with unique strengths and must work together to succeed against all odds. Dungeon Master, Bryce Pierson, will be teaching and guiding the sessions. He has been playing D&D and other games for over 15 years, and has led D&D games for large groups at conventions.
Virtual D&D programming is generously supported by F.O.L.K. (Friends of the Libraries, Kona).
