About

Welcome to the Lanai Public and School Library! Designed by architect Edwin T. Murayama, our library opened its doors to the public on Oct. 15, 1975. Our public and school library is the seventh such facility in the state and the first in Maui county. Our library is the only place on the island that provides free Internet access and Wi-Fi for library card holders.
