About

Welcome to the Kealakekua Public Library! Designed by architect Howard Redfearn, our library opened on Oct. 14, 1950. The original portion of our library was built with native lava rock and ohia logs. Located in West Hawaii, our library serves residents from Keauhou-Kona to Ocean View in the Ka`u District.

Can you remember the sense of peace and enjoyment you felt while coloring as a child? Use colored pencils or gel pens to create a meditative state.  Repetitive motions such as coloring (or running, walking, dancing) can help strengthen your focus and easily shift your attention back to a relaxed state. Stressful thoughts and future worries can be simply pushed aside as you take time to enjoy the present.

This program is conducted on the first Friday of the month.

Program schedule is subject to change. Contact the library 15 days in advance to request a sign language interpreter or if special accommodations are needed.

While there, she learns about the world of beekeeping, honey, and the Black Madonna.
