Welcome to the Manoa Public Library! Designed by architect Gary Kawakami of Architecture Plus, Inc., and built by Allied Pacific Builders on the site of the original library, our $10.3 million replacement library opened on June 9, 2012. Our environmentally-friendly library features free Wi-Fi, computer laptop area, separate programming room, photovoltaic solar panels, high-efficiency air-conditioning system, and covered parking for cars and bicycles. In 2013, Manoa Public Library was awarded the prestigious Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certification.
From August 31, 2019 to January 30, 2020, the Manoa Library will be hosting Local Takes, A Honolulu Printmakers Exhibition. The exhibit will be on display in our lobby.
Local Takes features published works by local authors as its inspiration. Each artist chose one work (or excerpt) to interpret through a book form, imagery, or typographic layout.

Feng Shui expert Clear Englebert will discuss the differences in the two kinds of feng shui (Compass and Form School), and explain chi energy. He will demonstrate graphically how some furniture placement is strong and some is weak. He will explain Harsh energy as well as how to retain beneficial energy in the home, and he will show the importance of the shape of the floor plan and the arrangement of the rooms.
Feng shui is not rocket science, and it does not require a leap of faith—Englebert has taught it to grammar school classes. He says, “Feng shui is about using the things you have in the home you have to move your life forward. I wouldn’t practice it if I hadn’t seen the results in my own life and repeatedly in the lives of my clients.”
