E-books from Hawaii State Public Library

If you don’t have a Hawaii State Public Library Card, you can sign up for one online. Go to https://librarieshawaii.org to sign up. Having a card will allow you to borrow a book from their extensive e-book and audio book collection, search their online databases and also watch streaming video/movies through Kanopy. My next post will highlight “how” to borrow an e-book.
