About

Welcome to the Kaneohe Public Library! Our library, which opened in its present location in January 1963, was built to serve a community that is both urban and rural. It also serves as a back-up reference and resource library for our Windward public libraries in Kahuku, Kailua, and Waimanalo. The entire family will be educated and entertained by weekly storytimes and our monthly Game & Activity Days, Lego Club, and Movie Nights.
