About

Welcome to the Liliha Public Library! Designed by Steven Oyakawa, a former student of Frank Lloyd Wright, our library opened on Dec. 12, 1966. Our uniquely-built library features skylights, rounded corners, and generous allotments of space for all parts of the building to create an ideal mid-sized library. Liliha Public Library is the only library in HSPLS with roof-top parking.

Upcoming Events

Senior cyclers on tricycles

The Hawaii Bicycling League, with a grant from the City & County of Honolulu, Department of Transportation Services, has purchased recumbent tricycles for Hawai‘i’s kūpuna to try, for free! Recumbent tricycles are known for their unique riding position that offer greater stability and comfort to riders of all levels. Even if you haven’t been on a bike since your childhood, or don’t know how to ride a bike, the recumbent trike offers a (very comfortable) alternative to traditional upright bicycles. They’re great for people with bad backs or poor balance.

Rediscover your youth on adult recumbent tricycles supplied by HBL!

This program is suitable for ages 50 years and older.

Pre-registration is required. Visit or call Liliha Public Library at 587-7577 to register.

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.

apple on a diet

We’ve heard of them — diets with names like “Paleo” and “ketogenic.” Are they legitimate or simply fads better described with words such as “misunderstood” and “misstep?” What does the human body really crave? How can we begin to separate those cravings for the nutrients that sustain us from the appetites that consume us? We’ll try to give some insight to these questions and more in our upcoming Health Education workshop from HMSA.

Pre-registration is required. Visit or call Liliha Public Library at 587-7578 to register.
