The new Nanakuli Library had a community groundbreaking ceremony. The location of the library is very special. Learning and knowledge truly flow through the Nanakuli ahupua’a starting from the valley with Nanakuli High School, Intermediate, Elementary, and Nanaikapono. The new library will be located next to Nanaikapono and symbolically connect all four DOE schools in the valley to Ka Waihona o Ka Na’auao and then to the ocean. The library will serve as a font of knowledge in the community, feature a business center with rooms for community meetings, and an upgraded AV center for viewing films, recording, and preserving oral family history. It is my hope that every student, child, parent, and community member will enter the library to learn and go forth to serve their families, the community, and the State of Hawaii.
