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.
