Upcoming Events

Join us on the first Saturday of every month for our Silent Reading Party. You can also enjoy a silent game of chess, checkers and even a game of Tic-Tac-Toe.  For everyone, all ages, all day. Program will not be held on State holidays.

According to a recent BookRiot article:  “If you are a reader, you know the special pleasure of going out to read in public. But for most of us, reading in public has meant reading in public alone. But recently, a few recurring Silent Reading Parties have sprung up, giving readers a chance to read alone in public, but together.”

All programs are subject to change. If you require an auxiliary aid or accommodation due to a disability, please contact the library at least 7 days before the program date.

Maui Live Poets Society meets at Lahaina Library the 2nd Tuesday of every month – from 6:30 pm to 8 pm.
