Kapaa Public Library


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.

Ohana Readers and Imagination Library logosThe Kapaa Public Library participates in ʻOhana Readers, a literacy program that focuses on reading with family as an affiliate program of Dolly Partonʻs Imagination Library. The program offers high-quality, age-appropriate Imagination Library books each month to children who are under the age of five.

Dolly Partonʻs Imagination Library program is a zip code based mailing program. Families must live in these specific Kauai zip codes to participate. 

To register, click your ZIP code to download the registration form or visit the branch. You may return the form by mail or drop it off at the branch. The participating library will also offer programs that complement the books the children receive, and will provide other activities to promote literacy and reading.

For more information, visit the ‘Ohana Readers website.
