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.

Jack Skellington is the King of Halloween. He becomes bored with the same routine every year and decides to take a walk in the woods. There he discovers a door leading to Christmastown and decides to spread Christmas joy to the world. Things do not go as planned when Oogie Boogie, an evil boogeyman, plots to play a game with Santa Claus’ life and creates a nightmare for all the good little boys and girls everywhere.
Rated PG for some scary images
