Kaneohe Public Library

The Kaneohe Public Library temporarily closed on February 26, 2024 for a construction project.

A small pop-up location offering limited services is available inside the Windward Mall, near Ross Dress for Less, Fun Factory and Panda Express. Patrons will be able to borrow from a small collection of materials, pick-up holds, return borrowed items, use computers and wi-fi service. The pop-up location will maintain the same hours as the library.

At this time, the construction project is scheduled to be completed by Spring 2025.

About 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.
