About

Welcome to the Lihue Public Library! We are the largest library on Kauai, located in central Lihue within walking distance of many State and County buildings. Designed by architect Stephen Oyakawa, our 22,300 sq. ft. building is distinguished by its arc-shaped roof and lava rock walls. In 2013, our library underwent extensive ADA renovations with facility upgrades and improvements.

Upcoming Events

Adult Book Bingo logo

Stuck in a reading rut? Want to broaden your reading choices?

Try playing book bingo. The adult bingo board challenges readers to read good books outside their normal reading patterns. You can choose which rows or columns or diagonals to read. Choose from genre, award-winning, translated, or topical books such as art, science, or health. There are also challenges to read young adult or children’s books, or to write a book review. 

Read a row, a column, or a diagonal and pick up a reading reward. Read the whole card, and pick up a bingo!

Program schedule is subject to change.
