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.

movie reel and clapperboard

A movie perfect for mystery and suspense lovers!

Although Belgium’s premiere sleuth Hercule Poirot plans a spectacular Egyptian vacation aboard a glamorous river steamer, the trip turns into a terrifying search for a murderer after a picture-perfect couple’s honeymoon is cut tragically short.  Set against a sweeping landscape of pyramids and desert vistas, Death on the Nile features a stunning ensemble cast.  Based on Agatha Christie’s beloved novel, this tale of unbridled passion and jealousy is filled with wicked twists and turns that will have you guessing until the shocking finale.

Movie is rated PG-13, recommended for teens and adults.
