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.


Ohana Readers and Imagination Library logosThe Lanai Public and School Library participates in ʻOhana Readers, a literacy program that focuses on reading with family as an affiliate program of Dolly Partonʻs Imagination Library. The program offers high-quality, age-appropriate Imagination Library books each month to children who are under the age of five. Dolly Partonʻs Imagination Library program is a zip code based mailing program. Families must live in the Lanai zip code (96763) to participate. 

To register, download the registration form or visit the branch. You may return the form by mail or drop it off at the branch. The participating library will also offer programs that complement the books the children receive, and will provide other activities to promote literacy and reading.

Calling all keiki! Join us for a FREE art workshop, and let your imagination run wild as you sculpt air dry clay into fantastical or realistic creatures. If you wish to make a critter that defies gravity, you will learn how to create a skeleton-like base crafted from armature wire to support your clay! No matter what you imagine, your freestanding creations will stand strong as you explore the possibilities of patterns, textures, and details. Will you make creatures you’ve seen in the world around us or ones that are purely invented?
