About

Welcome to the Wailuku Public Library! Designed by architect C. W. Dickey with a high, steep roof to facilitate air circulation, our library opened on Aug. 6, 1929. We are the first public library in Maui County and located within the Wailuku Civic Center Historic District.  A state-of-the-art Maui Bookmobile funded by the Maui Friends of the Library is based here.

It is a unique approach to make reading fun for children, with the ultimate goal of improving literacy skills and building self-confidence. Parents must pre-register for 15-minute time slots, and a parent/caregiver must be present during the session.
