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.

Join us and talk story about caregiving with Dave Nassaney, a syndicated radio host, life-coach, and best-selling author of “It’s My Life, Too! Reclaim Your Caregiver Sanity.” His most important role is caregiver to his lovely wife, Charlene, who suffered a massive stroke in 1996 that left her severely speech-impaired and paralyzed on the right side.
