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.

Family tree

All families have a history, an interesting history, a history that will die unless YOU undertake the research, writing and publishing of that history.

Learn how one family undertook the task and created a book that generations from now will read through and be able to trace their ancestries back to 3 brothers who emigrated from Japan and settled in Honolulu at the turn of the 20th century; stories of murder, war, financial boons and disasters, struggles and triumphs.

Presented by Allen Awaya, editor of From Kaminoseki to Honolulu with Nathan Yoshizaki
