About

Welcome to the Naalehu Public Library! One of the smallest libraries in HSPLS, our 775- sq. ft. “portable” library building opened in its present location on Feb. 24, 1994. Following a two year expansion project, the newly-renovated 1,676-sq. ft. library reopened on November 15, 2021. The Library expansion project was a partnership between the Hawaii State Public Library System, the Friends of the Library of Hawaii, and the United States Department of Agriculture that provided grant funding to expand the building.

Naalehu is considered the “southernmost community in the USA” which would make our library the “southernmost library in the USA.” Our library serves patrons from Naalehu through Ocean View.


Ohana Readers and Imagination Library logosThe Naalehu Public Library participates in ʻOhana Readers, a literacy program that focuses on reading with family as an affiliate program of Dolly Partonʻs Imagination Library. The program offers high-quality, age-appropriate Imagination Library books each month to children who are under the age of five.

Dolly Partonʻs Imagination Library program is a zip code based mailing program. Families must live in these specific Hawaii Island zip codes to participate. 

To register, click your ZIP code to download the registration form or visit the branch. You may return the form by mail or drop it off at the branch. The participating library will also offer programs that complement the books the children receive, and will provide other activities to promote literacy and reading.
