HSPLS ChiliFresh Mobile App screenHawaii State Public Library System Launches Mobile App

While a legal dispute between the Hawaii State Public Library System’s vendor SirsiDynix and that company’s third-party vendor, Solus continues, HSPLS has been able to enable a mobile app solution to provide basic virtual services to our patrons.

The app can be found by searching “Libraries Hawaii” in Apple’s App Store, Google Play for Android apps, or stop by your nearest public library for assistance. HSPLS is relaunching its original app, and app provider ChiliFresh is working with the HSPLS to add features that our patrons have grown to love – like being able to provide access to multiple library accounts.

The “Libraries Hawaii” app by ChiliFresh provides these basic services:

  • Use in place of your physical library card
  • Check account information such as items borrowed, due dates and fines
  • Browse the HSPLS catalog
  • Scan a barcode from a book, DVD or CD title to check availability in HSPLS’ catalog
  • View a list of checked out items and renew items
  • View a list of reserved items and place or cancel holds
  • View Library Hours
  • Renew and scan items

Ebooks and audiobooks may still be checked out using the Libby application.
