About

Welcome to the Waikiki-Kapahulu Public Library! Designed by Cyril Lemmon and Associates, we opened on July 11, 1952, at the Diamond Head end of the Ala Wai Canal. Known for its cathedral-like windows, our library serves “snow birds” during the winter from the mainland, Canada, and other visitors worldwide.

Mr. Kneel

Blast off into “Outer Space” with Mr Kneel!  With beat-box and percussion, Mr. Kneel can create magic and emotion.  Most of all, he is extremely entertaining!  His Beat-Box Workshop focuses on building the self-respect of kids to empower them to build confidence to make music with no instruments or financial investment! Learning how to make funny noises can help children to realize with hardwork, they can accomplish anything.  This program is appropriate for all ages.

Mr Kneel is an entertainer and educator who brings his fun, yet powerful, message of self respect to students and families with amazing talent and passion.  Mr Kneel not only wows the audience with years of experience as an entertainer, he also has the hands-on teaching ability to educate along the way.
