Laupahoehoe Public and School Library


35-2065 Old Mamalahoa Hwy, Laupahoehoe, HI 96764, USA


Welcome to the Laupahoehoe Public and School Library! Designed by Richard S. Matsunaga and Associates, we opened in 1973 but earthquake damage closed us for nearly a year. We reopened in 1974 with a state-of-the-art video studio, darkroom, and Audiovisual Production Center. We are one of the few Hawaii Island libraries to offer a meeting room for public use.

Upcoming Events

Children are invited to join the After School Coloring Club. Every weekday (Monday through Friday), from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., participants will be able to make printed clip art for coloring. All supplies will be provided. Young children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver. This program will not be held on State holidays.

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.

Dog Training is not just magic words. Join Franis Engel as she shows how and why reinforcement works using the “clicker” training experience. Techniques discussed and practiced will be from Karen Pryor’s dog training manuals. Some training manuals will be available for checkout.

**Please bring your clicker and any questions that you may have regarding dog training and the clicker training method.

Susan Collins, a librarian in the Hawaii State Library System, will share and demonstrate how to access databases, online courses, and more – free! Patrons will learn about these unique and free services offered through the Hawaii State Library System from the comfort of their own homes using their library card. Databases offer free services such as ebooks, audiobooks, emagazines, online language learning, online certificate programs, ancestry research, and much more.

Make learning fun again for all ages! Attendees are encouraged to bring a device that they can try out some of these wonderful resources and a valid library card. **All ages are welcome.
**Ages 12 and over need to be accompanied by an adult.
