About

Welcome to the Kalihi-Palama Public Library! Designed by architect Vladimir Ossipoff,  called “the master of Hawaii modern architecture,” our library opened on Sept. 9, 1949. One of the few HSPLS libraries with an auditorium, ours is unique and popular- booked a year in advance. On Sept. 9, 2014, our library celebrated its 65th Anniversary.
