About

Welcome to the Lahaina Public Library! We opened on Mar. 4, 1956 on the site of a former royal taro patch belonging to King Kamehameha III. Our 19,031 sq. ft. library serves the local community as well as many tourists that visit the area. $280,000 renovation completed in 2012 (no State cost) thanks to Rotary Club of Lahaina, HSPLS, Maui Friends of Library, other donors.

Upcoming Events

Maui Writers Ink will present their latest anthology of short stories, “Supernatural Tales,” at the Lahaina Library on Saturday November 25th, 10:30am to noon.

Come meet the authors and enjoy hearing them read their stories just the way they intended. A great way to enjoy Lahaina on a Saturday morning!

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.”

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.
