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. Weekly storytimes on Thursdays are often standing room only because children’s librarian Curt Fukumoto offers spectacular presentations of stories enhanced with puppets, shadow boxes, and music to entertain and educate preschoolers.
