Hawaiʻi Libraries Cancel Programs, Events
Out of an abundance of caution, and in the interest of everyone’s health and safety, the Hawaiʻi State Public Library System (HSPLS) will implement a few changes to library service beginning March 16, 2020 through the rest of the month:
- All programs and events will be cancelled at all 51 locations.
- All external meetings scheduled in Library meeting rooms will be cancelled or rescheduled.
- Bookmobile Services will be suspended.
- To reduce exposure, HSPLS is following best sanitation practices for workplaces, as well as pulling toys and other difficult-to-sanitize items from public areas.
- Patrons will have two automatic renewals on library items that are eligible for renewal. Please visit our website for more information.
- Donations from the public will not be accepted at any location.
HSPLS encourages everyone to check out HSPLS’ many digital resources, including e-books and e-audiobooks, online classes, and digital subscriptions to newspapers and magazines, which are available 24/7 online.
HSPLS is monitoring all State and federal information and guidance, and re-evaluating its services daily. Patrons can stay updated on changes to HSPLS services here.
