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 seating for patrons to read or chat with friends

vision board with motivational sayings and images to represent dreams and goals

The purpose of a vision/dream board is to visualize your big-picture dreams and goals. It represents how you want your life to look now and in the future. Art engagement has been found to alleviate anxiety, depression, and stress. Aside from helping to set goals, creating a vision board will be an opportunity to unwind and take a step away from whatever stressors you’re facing.

Your board should include anything that inspires and motivates you, so think about what that means before you come.

Registration required. Call 808-266-9911 or visit the Reference Desk to sign up. 10 spots available. All supplies provided. You may bring any photos, sayings, stickers, etc., that you would like to include in your board.
