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.

Ohana Readers and Imagination Library logosThe Waimea Public Library participates in ʻOhana Readers, a literacy program that focuses on reading with family as an affiliate program of Dolly Partonʻs Imagination Library. The program offers high-quality, age-appropriate Imagination Library books each month to children who are under the age of five.

Dolly Partonʻs Imagination Library program is a zip code based mailing program. Families must live in these specific Kauai zip codes to participate. 

To register, click your ZIP code to download the registration form or visit the Pop-Up library location. You may return the form by mail or drop it off at the branch. The participating library will also offer programs that complement the books the children receive, and will provide other activities to promote literacy and reading.
