Staffing Shortage Closes Honokaa Library until August 23, 2015


Honokaa Public Library (Big Island) will close temporarily due to a staffing shortage from today through Sunday, August 23rd and is scheduled to reopen on Monday, August 24th at 11 a.m. The book drop will remain open for returning library materials.

“We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused our Honokaa Public Library patrons,” said State Librarian Stacey Aldrich.

While the Library is closed, patrons may contact or visit any of our other public libraries. In addition, patrons may log-on to the HSPLS website: 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.
  • Browse the HSPLS Catalog for book titles, eBooks, digital audio books, and our 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.

All items checked out with a due date from August 11, 2015 to the reopening date will be extended.
