About

Welcome to the Pahoa Public and School Library! Our library opened on Sept. 3, 1967. We’re located on the campus of Pahoa High and Elementary School and serve residents and students from two area schools. Recently, we were an important hub after being hit by a hurricane and lava flows approached from Kilauea volcano.
