The first card is free for Hawaii residents and for military personnel (with military identification) and their dependents.

The parent or guardian must present a current ID and proof of mailing address.
There are two non-resident cards. The $25 non-resident card is valid for 5 years. The $10 non-resident card is valid for 3 months.
The card replacement fee for both residents and non-residents is $5. Resident library cards must be renewed every 5 years. There is no charge for the renewal.
If your card is lost or stolen, please report it to a library staff member immediately. A block will be placed on your file so that no one else can use your card.
