Long Description:
From the National Register of Historic Places Inventory-Nomination Form for the Wailuku Civic Center Historic District

The Wailuku Library [is a] Mediterranean revival/Hawaiian style building ... designed by C.W. Dickey. .. completed in 1928 .... The library is a single story, asymmetrically massed building. Its most prominent feature, a large double-pitched hip roof with overhanging eaves, shelters the main body of the building. Two wings, with lower, but equally dramatic, double-pitched hip roofs, extend from the right rear and the left of the entry.

The entry porch features a tile drinking fountain with a silver sword motif. Long, thin casement windows modulate the plastered walls of the facade. An addition on the left side of the building is in keeping with the library's original design. A large Monkey Pod tree, which predates the library, stands at the Lahaina end of the property.
