Princeville Public Library


Welcome to the Princeville Public Library! Designed by Kauai-born architect Maurice Yamasato of Yamasato, Fujiwara, Aoki & Associates, our library opened on Apr. 14, 1999. Princeville Corp., in partnership with the State and County, provided land to build the library. We are the 6th public library to open on the Garden Island.

Ohana Readers and Imagination Library logosThe Princeville 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 Kauai 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.

For more information, visit the ‘Ohana Readers website.
