About

Welcome to the Keaau Public & School Library! Designed by Matsunaga, Sako, and Associates/Architects, Inc., we’re located on Keaau Middle School campus, and opened on Sept. 30, 1974. In 2014, we offered temporary free 24/7 Wi-Fi to Puna residents during June 27th lava flow and Hurricane Iselle’s devastation. Our library celebrated its 40th Anniversary on Nov. 25, 2014.
