Public Library system to purge inactive accounts from database Monday (Nov 22)


The Hawaii State Public Library System’s patron database will undergo a purge of records on Monday, November 22 to remove inactive accounts. Removing these inactive accounts will provide an updated, more accurate database for our business and management uses. Inactive accounts are accounts with expired library cards (five years) and:

  • No borrowed library material in the past three years and
  • No outstanding items, charges or fees; and/or
  • Whose card holders are former residents who have relocated from Hawaii.

The record of a patron who has not borrowed library material in the past three years or more may be purged. Patrons who visit their local library, present their library card, and discover that their record has been purged can reactivate their card, free-of-charge, by completing a new library card application form and presenting valid identification. The database clean-up procedure will not affect currently active library patrons.

Internet computer users who do not borrow materials and only use their library card to access the library system’s Internet stations or subscription databases from home or office, may notice that their accounts have been purged. These patrons can reactivate their accounts, free-of-charge, by completing a new application form and providing valid identification at any HSPLS library.
