HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Hawaiian Word of the Day is Hale Waihona Puke.
This word is a long one, actually three words in one. Hale is a word that means home, but it is also used as a generic reference to any building or lodge. Waihona is word that means closet, cabinet, vault or depository, and the word puke is a Hawaiianized version of the English word book. Put these three words side-by-side and we get Hale Waihona Puke, or the building that stores books, or the library.
