Aloha Library Friends,
How are you? We miss you at the library!
Please know that we are working diligently to navigate the ongoing changes in guidance and requirements from local, state, and federal authorities during the COVID-19 outbreak. Given the most recent information, we will need to make some changes to support the health of our communities:
1) All public library locations and bookmobile services will be closed March 18 – April 7, 2020.
2) All book drops will be closed starting March 19, 2020. Please hold on to your checked-out library materials until we open again.
While we are closed, we don’t want for you to worry about fines and due dates during this stressful time. Due dates and holds have been automatically extended.
We’ve made a few changes to make sure you have access to all of our free online resources while we are closed.
We are always open at librarieshawaii.org with many amazing online resources available to access from home 24/7. Our online collection includes:
Enjoy our free resources using your library card!
I just want to talk with someone
If you have questions or would like to talk with someone, we’re here to help. Please call: Monday – Friday from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, 808-586-3500 or 1-800-390-3611 (toll-free for neighbor islands)
We know these changes may be difficult, but we will continue to find ways to support you! Updates and alerts will be posted as they occur.
For health and hygiene tips, and reliable news sources about COVID-19, please visit the State of Hawaii Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Be well! Mahalo and Aloha!
In state observance of Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalanianaʻole Day, libraries that are normally closed on Mondays will observe the holiday and be closed on Tuesday, March 28th.
