“When I’m researching Hawaiian history at the library, I’m where I belong”

I’m a Hawaiian History buff and do research through the State Library system. Books I cannot get close to home I reserve online and pick it up at the nearest library. It’s a wonderful way to bring our library closer to home. I’m surprised to find a waiting list for computers at our libraries. I want to thank all the people responsible for keeping our libraries clean and open to the public. Please keep our libraries open, I support any legislation to fund our libraries, they need all our support. Thank you.
