If you’re visiting Hawaii, the best unpublished bargain is our state library. If you’re a resident and you don’t have a card — what? Lolo? Go get one now. It’s completely free for residents and just a nominal fee for non-residents.
There are two types of library cards available for those who are not residents of Hawaii. The $25.00 non-resident card is good for five years and may be renewed for an additional $25.00. The $10.00 non-resident card is good for 3 months and may be renewed for $10.
The only catch is that you need to apply in person.
If you’re like me and you like reading magazines, you can’t go wrong. There are nearly 200 titles, all available online through Zinio for reading on your iPad or Android and without charge if you use your library card.
You can also borrow e-books or audiobooks from Overdrive and OneClick Digital.
