After a $2 million makeover, the McCully-Moiliili Public Library reopens its doors

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Grab a book! The McCully-Moiliili Public Library reopened to the public on Friday ― and it may look different than you remember.

The library, which has served the community for more than 50 years, received a total of $2 million from the Hawaii State Legislature to renovate needed areas.

During the pandemic, the library used the hiatus to repair its roof, areas affected by water damage, lighting, signage and more.

Along with the structural fixes, library visitors can now also find a new circulation desk, an interactive space in the children’s area, a new lobby and improvements to the community meeting room.

“We are so grateful to the McCully-Moiliili community for your patience and support during this extended shutdown. We look forward to welcoming you all again!” State Librarian Stacey Aldrich said in a news release Friday.

Future planning has already begun, including exterior painting, parking lot repairs, exterior upgrades and exterior safety equipment.

The McCully-Moiliili Public Library is located at 2211 King Street South. The library will be open to the public:

  • Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Thursdays from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
