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

Let’s read, sing, and play at the library! The librarian will present interactive books and rhymes for children ages birth to 5 years. The rest of the program is for free play with educational toys or an art activity. Young children must be accompanied by an adult caregiver.

Please note that every six weeks, storytime switches to playgroup for a two week break.

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.

Storyteller Dave Del Rocco

Storyteller Dave Del Rocco will share folktales from around the world, including Laos, Hawaii, Italy, Africa, the Philippines, and more. His stories are mostly funny and explain how different cultures view aspects of their world. Dave is a former Children’s Librarian with the Hawaii State Public Library System and has translated several children’s books into Hawaiian for the Department of Education’s immersion program. This 45-minute program is suitable for all ages. Young children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.

Sponsored by the Friends of Waimea Public Library. This is a production of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Outreach College’s Statewide Cultural Extension Program with additional funding and support provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, Hawaii State Foundation on Culture  and the Arts, and the University of Hawaii.
