Liliha Public Library

Liliha Public Library is currently closed for major renovations. Repairs and improvement work is being done on both the interior and exterior of the building. This project started in January 2019 and is anticipated to last until Spring of 2020. We understand that the extensive closure does create a hardship for our users and apologize for this inconvenience as we work through multiple building issues for this project.

Patrons are encouraged to visit neighboring libraries in Kalihi, Manoa and McCully. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to improve your library.

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.
