Laupahoehoe Library will close Monday, July 8, for a pre-scheduled re-roofing and downspout replacement project. The book drop will be locked and inaccessible starting Friday, July 5, at 3 p.m. for the duration of the project.
While the library is closed, patrons may visit any of the other public libraries. In addition, patrons may log on to the HSPLS website: www.librarieshawaii.org to renew books and most library materials online for an additional three weeks if there are no reserves on the items. Only one renewal per item is allowed.
Items that are not eligible for renewal are Hot Picks, DVDs, videotapes, and overdue materials. Renewals will not be allowed if the item has been requested by someone else.
Browse the Hawaii State Public Library System HSPLS Catalog for book titles, eBooks, digital audio books, and a wide variety of online databases which provide access to full-text materials from thousands of magazines, newspapers, journals and other publications.
Get answers to brief informational reference questions by using the “Ask-A-Librarian” e-reference service: Select the “information” tab, click on “e-reference” and follow the simple instructions. A library card is not required to use this service.
An announcement will be made when the library is scheduled to reopen, said an HSPLS spokesman.
