About

Welcome to the Waimea Public Library! Designed by architect Guy Rothwell, our 3,724 sq. ft. library is located on Kaumualii Highway across from Waimea High School. One of the smallest libraries in the state library system, Waimea Public Library supports a diverse and ever-changing community.

Upcoming Events

Toys

Every Thursday morning, we welcome families with young children ages 0 to 5 years to participate in storytime or playgroup at the library. Please ask the library staff if you would like to know which type of program will be happening this week.

Storytime: The librarian will present an interactive program featuring stories and songs, followed by a group activity (e.g. process art, simple craft, or free play).

Playgroup: The library’s collection of toys and puzzles are available for little ones to play with their grownups and other friends!

Young children must be accompanied by an adult caregiver. Please notify the library at least 7 days in advance if you need special accommodation.

Mobile phone and laptop computer with security warnings

Do you practice good cyber hygiene?

Throughout October, cyber security professionals from the International Security Consortium (ISC) will be visiting public libraries statewide to share best practices on keeping you and your identity safe on the Internet.

At this free one-hour presentation, cyber expert Tracy Fu will discuss malware protection, passwords, wifi usage, online shopping and banking, scams, safe email habits, phishing, data backup, and social media. This program will also include a question & answer session. Teens, college students and adults are highly encouraged to attend.

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.
