Posted on: October 5, 2016 | Category: News

The Hawaii State Public Library System (HSPLS) is excited to roll out a brand new website to our community strategically created to excite, inspire and delight users of all ages. Much time and care was put into creating a design that is easy to navigate and helps you to discover the vast amount of amazing programs and services that the library system has to offer. HSPLS was thrilled to partner with the Hawaii Information Consortium, who did a fantastic job building the new website.
