About

Welcome to the Kailua Public Library! Designed by the architectural firm of Lemmon, Freeth, Maines and Jones, our library opened on Dec. 28, 1960. Best known for our “Reading Tree” in the Children’s Room, it provides an aesthetically-pleasing backdrop for storytimes and special events. In back of our library is a beautiful courtyard with a fountain for patrons to read or chat with friends

Upcoming Events

For keiki ages 3 – 5 accompanied by a parent or an adult caregiver.

Join us for stories, crafts, and other learning experiences. Introduce your child to the joy of reading a book and set them on the road to a future of lifelong learning. Some days, we will have storytime. Other days we will have crafts to develop fine motor skills. There might even be songs and movement days, and a few journaling activities that can get keiki interested in writing. You never know what you’ll find under the Kailua Library learning tree. See you there.

Program is subject to change. Contact the library 10 days in advance to request a sign language interpreter or if special accommodations are needed. Program is suitable for age 5 and under. Children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.
