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

Storytime for children

Reading, singing and playing together are great ways to get young children ready for a lifetime of learning. Families with children ages 0-5 years are invited to participate in an interactive storytime at the library to have fun while developing early literacy skills. We’ll read stories and sing songs, then offer a playtime and an opportunity to make art or a craft.

Please note that young children must be accompanied by an adult caregiver. Our program schedule is subject to change. Please notify the library if you would like to request special accommodation at least 15 days in advance.

BOO and HOO are happy, even though they always seem to get an Ouch! Like the time when they got their fingers trapped in the door and the time they fell and scraped their knees. One day BOO and HOO begin to feel other people’s OUCHES. So they set out on an adventure with their box of band aids to fix all the OUCHES in the world. Performance is sponsored by the Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i.

This 30-minute performance is suitable for ages 2 and older. Young children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.

Program schedule is subject to change. Contact the library 15 days in advance to request a sign language interpreter or if special accommodations are needed.

Kamalama Parenting is a Hawaiian values-based parenting curriculum rooted in the understanding that parents are their children’s first teachers.  Participants will realize how much of their own values and belief systems contribute to their style of parenting.  Each class incorporates a Hawaiian value and positive parenting principles.  Lessons include stories, activities, and a talk story time.

The class instructor will be Bridgette Orsatelli from Child & Family Service, who is trained in several parenting programs.  She received training for Kamalama Parenting from Venus Rosete-Medeiros, the Regional Director of Maui County for Kamehameha Schools and the author of the curriculum.

In order to keep the group interactive, registration is limited to 12 families.  If you are able to commit to attending all or most of the sessions, please sign up tat the library.  Light refreshments will be served.  For more information, please contact the library at (808)338-6848.
