About

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.

Doug Simons, executive director at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope, will discuss future astronomical discoveries that are on the horizon, many linked to observations from Maunakea. Fueled by exponential
advancements in technology, our understanding of dark matter and energy, black holes, the first stars in the universe, and how even “new physics” is growing rapidly.
