Liliha Public Library

The Liliha Public Library will be closed for major renovations starting Saturday, November 24, 2018. Due to recent plumbing problems over the last several weeks, the Hawaii State Public Library System (HSPLS) is forced to accelerate closure of the Liliha Public Library to start work on the renovations. Repairs to the main sewer line are already scheduled to be part of the planned renovation project. Major renovations to the Liliha Public Library – including ground stabilization and structural support work, main sewer line repair, reroofing, and various interior renovations – had been planned to start in the coming months. Unfortunately, due to the recent plumbing problems, HSPLS will no longer be able to provide safe sanitary conditions for library patrons and staff until after the renovations are completed. We apologize for any inconvenience the sudden closure may have on our Liliha Public Library patrons. The book drop will be closed, and all programs scheduled after the closure date are cancelled. Programs will resume after the renovation is completed. Until we are able to re-open the Liliha Public Library, the Hawaii State Public Library System encourages patrons to visit the Kalihi-Palama Public Library, the Hawaii State Library or any of our other public library branches.
