Who We Are

The mission of the Hawaii State Public Library System is to provide Hawaii's residents, in all walks of life, and at each stage of their lives, with access to education, information, programs and services, and to teach and nurture the love of reading and the habit of life-long learning. Liliha Public Library opened on December 12, 1966 in a building designed by Stephen Oyakawa, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. The combination of skylights, an interior where every angle has beeen rounded, and good use of space has created the ideal medium-sized library.

What We Do

Liliha Public Library is part of the Hawaii State Public System, and as such provides library users with equal access to library materials, electronic material collections and the Internet, via one integrated website. Customers can borrow, reserve, and return library materials to any of public libraries within the system.

Liliha Public Library is located within 2 miles of downtown Honolulu, and serves a long established neighborhood of low to upper middle income residents. The area contains 20 public and private schools. Our primary focus is children, teenagers and immigrants, and the library boasts an extensive collection of Chinese language materials.
