Waipahu Public Library


Welcome to the Waipahu Public Library! Library services in Waipahu began as early as 1952 with a library on Farrington Highway. Our current library opened at a new facility located next to the Waipahu Civic Center on Mar. 18, 1996. Designed by Mitsunaga and Associates, our library features Oahu’s only drive-thru window and exclusive reading room for teens.

The Library’s drive-thru window conveniently allows patrons to pick up holds and return books. The entrance to the drive-thru window is located on Mokuola Street.

Library patrons must use the Pay Station for parking. Meters have been disabled and will be removed. Free parking is allowed on Saturdays.

Hawai‘i is the most ethnically and culturally diverse State in the nation. From the arrival of Polynesians to the 21st Century, pride, renewal, and fusion are terms used to define the stories we tell of ourselves and of those who influenced our island lifestyle. Aunty Nyla will share stories and music that took root in our island home. This free 45-minute program is suitable for all ages.

Aunty Nyla Fujii-Babb has been a storyteller, actress, voice-over talent, and producer for over 30 years. She has taught storytelling and shared storieswith all ages from native Hawaiian elders to preschoolers statewide.
