Kaimuki Public Library will Add Another Day of Service Starting in December 2012.
Two Oahu libraries - Kaimuki Public Library and Kalihi-Palama Public Library - will provide an early Christmas present for their respective communities in the first week of December. Both libraries will be adding another day to their public service schedules, increasing from five to six days of service!
"We would like to say mahalo nui loa to Governor Abercrombie for lifting the hiring freeze which allowed us to recruit and fill the vacancies at these libraries," said State Librarian Richard Burns. "We would also like to thank the legislators, the Board of Education, and the unions for their support to help make these additional hours possible."
"We are especially appreciative of the staff at these two libraries and congratulate them for making significant personal sacrifices in order to provide increased public service for all HSPLS patrons," said Burns.
Kaimuki Public Library (1041 Koko Head Avenue), normally open Sunday through Thursday, will add Friday to its schedule beginning December 7 and will be open that day from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Kaimuki Public Library's new public service schedule will be:
- Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Monday and Tuesday, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
- Wednesday and Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- Friday, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
- Saturday, CLOSED
