About

Welcome to the Kapaa Public Library! Our library, which opened on Mar. 12, 1955, celebrated 60 years of service in 2015. It serves the largest population center on Kauai and is one of two oceanfront public libraries in Hawaii. Our library has a “small-town” atmosphere with its cozy building but also offers the latest technology, including free Wi-Fi.

A Los Angeles Public Library Best Nonfiction Book of 2018

Publisher’s Weekly Starred Review

For February, American Heart Month, delve into the mysteries and recent science of the heart.  For centuries, the human heart seemed beyond our understanding: an inscrutable shuddering mass that was somehow the driver of emotion and the seat of the soul. As the cardiologist and bestselling author Sandeep Jauhar shows in Heart: A History, it was only recently that we demolished age-old taboos and devised the transformative procedures that have changed the way we live.

To sign up for the book discussion, visit or call us, and receive your complimentary copy of Heart: A History, by Sandeep Jauhar, while supplies last, courtesy of the National Network of Medical Libraries Book Club.  Join us for a discussion in the library’s meeting room.  Time of meeting to be determined.

Refreshments will be providedby the Friends of Kapaa Public Library
