Lahaina Public Library

The Lahaina Public Library is closed until further notice.

The loss of family, friends, homes, businesses and cultural heritage during the August fires is devastating, and we are all heart broken. Our aloha and prayers are with our Lahaina community.

While only the walls of our library are left, our staff are unharmed and standing strong. The staff of the statewide system will be here to support you in the coming weeks, months and years.

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 4,540 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.
