About

Welcome to the North Kohala Public Library! Designed by CDS International, our $7.8 million, 6,000 sq.-ft. “green” library opened on Nov. 8, 2010. In Dec. 2011, we became the first HSPLS library and first state building in Hawaii to achieve LEED Gold Certification. Creative and innovative design features including wind and photovoltaic energy systems have helped us save about $1,500 annually on electricity bills.
