In the meantime, we appreciate your patience during our November closure, and look forward to seeing everyone again soon!

Please see our moving FAQ for information about the Aloha Community Library’s transition to a full-service WCCLS library. Check back soon for a reopening timeline and details about our Grand Opening Celebration in January!
