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 for an informative talk and book signing by David Nassaney, a best-selling author, speaker, radio host, and entrepreneur whose #1 best-selling book was released in September 2017, It’s My Life, Too! Reclaim Your Caregiver Sanity by Learning When to Say “Yes” and When to Say “No.” His most important role is caregiver to his lovely wife, Charlene, who suffered a massive stroke 21 years ago.

Dave has recently shared the speaking stage with fellow entrepreneur, actress, and interactive medicine guru, Suzanne Somers, at the Harvard Entrepreneurship annual Business Expert Forum. The mission of Dave’s radio show is to help caregivers overcome adversity, the grief process, and burnout — as well as just having a place to rest, relax & recharge their batteries. He interviews actual caregivers, who have become experts in their field and can give you actionable and practical advice to bring back the joy of caring for a loved one.

All programs are subject to change. If you require an auxiliary aid or accommodation due to a disability, please contact the library at least 7 days before the program date.
