About

Welcome to the Wahiawa Public Library! Designed by Arthur Kohara and built by Wahiawa Builders, our current library building opened on July 15, 1965. Wahiawa Public Library is the oldest library on Oahu; in 2015 it celebrated 75 years of service. As an important community information node, literacy, lifelong learning, and a love of reading remain vital to our library’s mission.

Blue Zones

Purpose is the legacy you leave behind. Living purposefully can extend ones life- perhaps as long as 7 years. But it’s so much more than that.  Purpose brings community together and reconnects people.  Join the Blue Zones Project in Wahiawa at an upcoming free Purpose Workshop.

Free. Seating is limited. RSVP: goo.gl/qcX6Eu or sign up at the library.
