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.

 

Learn fun ways to encourage children’s mathematical thinking in this 6 week program for parents and children ages 6 to 9 years. A parent is asked to attend with each child.

Honolulu Theatre for Youth's Sparkle performance logo

Lucas loves all things that Sparkle. His whole world is sparkly. Sparkly, sparkle and more sparkle. He loves it so much. One day Isabella comes to play. She doesn’t like sparkle at all and Lucas’s sparkle starts to dim. This poignant and humorous story is about giving yourself permission to express who you are and stand up for yourself… even if it is in your very own sparkly slippers.

Suitable for ages 3 and older. Children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.

This theatre-style performance is made possible through the City & County of Honolulu’s Grants in Aid fund.

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.
