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.

Upcoming Events

Children's Storytime

Please join us for a fun storytime which includes simple stories, action songs, nursery rhymes, fingerplays, and other fun activities with adult participation. This program is suitable for children ages 1 – 4 years old but all keiki are welcome.  Children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.  Registration is required as we need a head count for craft items and contact information in case of cancellation of the program.  Please remember to register as soon as possible as there is a limited space in each session. To register please come to the library or call 988-0459 during library hours.  Program schedule is subject to change.  Contact the library at least 15 days in advance to request a sign language interpreter or if special accommodations are needed.

To celebrate Earth Month (and Earth day, which falls on April 22), Malama Manoa will be hosting several stations in which people can:

  • See laying chickens and their eggs
  • View an empty beehive and taste honeycomb
  • Check out different types of composters
  • Take home native plants (while supplies last)

Program schedule is subject to change. Please contact the library 7 days in advance to request a sign language interpreter or if special accommodations are needed.
