Effective Monday, state public library patrons ages 12 and older must show proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result issued within the last 72 hours in order to enter the libraries.

The requirement is due to the executive order issued by Gov. David Ige that those entering state properties be fully vaccinated or show a negative test result.

Visitors ages 5 and older must also wear a suitable mask covering their nose, mouth and chin at all times while in the library, practice hand hygiene and physically distance themselves from others.

Proof of full vaccination can be via digital or hard copy of the vaccination card. Patrons must also show valid photo identification.

Visitors unable to enter the building will be provided assistance by staff at the door, according to a news release. This includes photocopying and checkout services.

Patrons can also access content at librarieshawaii.org.
