Aloha, Our public libraries are currently only open for Library Take Out
Be Safe and Be Well!
Although the building is not completely open, there are limited services available. Please check out Library Take Out.
The Naalehu Public Library reopened on October 3, 2019 in a temporary location in the Naalehu State Office Building as part of the long-awaited Naalehu Public Library expansion project.
The Naalehu Public Library expansion project is 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. Expected to take a year to complete, the new library will be triple the size of the current library.
Naalehu Public Library will continue the same public service schedule, except on Hawaii County Council Committee and Council Meeting days when available services may be adjusted to accommodate Council sessions.
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. 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.
