Aloha Library Friends!
Have you downloaded an ebook or e-audiobook yet? So many to choose from!
Well, the world has shifted again since our update last week. The Hawaii State Public Library System is making changes to help support the health of our communities. In compliance with Governor Ige’s 3rd Supplementary Proclamation regarding COVID-19, the Hawaii State Public Library System is making the following changes to services.
We don’t want you to worry about fines and due dates while we are closed. Due dates and holds have been automatically extended.
We want to make sure you can continue to access online resources. Library cards with $10 or more in fines and fees will still have access to all of the resources online. And all library cards that have expired will be extended, and can be renewed when we reopen.
Even though our physical libraries are closed, you can always use your HSPLS virtual public library. You can read (text or listening), learn, and explore the world of information 24/7 at librarieshawaii.org. Our online collection includes:
All you need is 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.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we navigate through this unprecedented time. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the Hawaii State Public Library System libraries in the future.
