Ground is Broken for New Aiea Public Library

Ground is Broken for New Aiea Public Library

A groundbreaking ceremony for the new, replacement Aiea Public Library was conducted on the site of the former Aiea Sugar Mill on Saturday, March 16.  Governor Neil Abercrombie and other invited dignitaries attended and participated in the ceremony.

The new 17,200 square foot Library was designed by CDS International and will replace the existing 10,000 square foot Library located at 99-143 Moanalua Road.  The original Aiea Public Library opened in 1964 and featured a unique hexagonal shape designed by architect Stephen Oyakawa, an associate of Frank Lloyd Wright.  While this building has served library users for nearly 50 years, as the community and usage has grown, the need for a larger facility has become necessary.  The original Library will remain open while the new Library is being built. The new Library is scheduled to open in 2014.
