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.
