Temporary closures

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.

The Kaneohe Public Library will re-open Sunday, February 10, 2019.  The library closed temporarily starting January 2, 2019 for a parking lot improvement project.   We apologize for the inconvenience to our Kaneohe library users.

ALERT! Aloha! The timeline for reopening the Aina Haina Public Library has been extended to February 2019. While we were making repairs and replacing the flooring, we finally received approval to renovate the bathrooms. The project kicked off Monday, September 17th, and is expected to take until the end of the year. We know this is disappointing to many Aina Haina Public Library patrons, and we truly apologize for the inconvenience. The good news is that when we do reopen, the library will have beautiful new floors and brand-new bathrooms that are ADA compliant. We look forward to celebrating the reopening with the community in early 2019, but until then, please do visit our Kaimuki and Hawaii Kai libraries.
