The Naalehu Public Library reopened on October 3, 2019 in a temporary location in the Naalehu State Office Building as part of the long-awaited Naalehu Public Library expansion project.

The Naalehu Public Library expansion project is a partnership between the Hawaii State Public Library System, the Friends of the Library of Hawaii, and the United States Department of Agriculture that provided grant funding to expand the building. Expected to take a year to complete, the new library will be triple the size of the current library.

Naalehu Public Library will continue the same public service schedule, except on Hawaii County Council Committee and Council Meeting days when available services may be adjusted to accommodate Council sessions. Except for these meeting dates, the Naalehu Public Library’s hours will be Monday and Wednesday 9:00am – 5:00pm, Tuesday and Thursday 10:00am – 6:00pm, Friday 12:00pm – 5:00pm.
