About

Welcome to the Thelma Parker Memorial Public and School Library! Designed by Team Pacific, Inc., our library opened in October 1978.  We are located on the campus of Waimea Elementary and Intermediate School. Our library was named after Thelma Parker, who inherited the Parker Ranch, the largest ranch on the Island of Hawaii.

Upcoming Events

Stories for Preschoolers

The Library hosts story time every Thursday for keikis, 2-5 and their families.  The program includes stories and songs with a simple craft activity to follow.  This enjoyable and bonding experience can provide opportunities for brain development and the building of friendships.  All children must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.  Special Events may be held in lieu of regularly scheduled programs.
