Today’s Hawaii travel tip will come in handy when you’re looking for cheap Wi-Fi in the islands. As of April 2, all public libraries in the state now offer unlimited Wi-Fi during business hours. All you need is a Hawaii library card.
Three steps to getting a visitor library card:
1. Download the library card application or pick one up at any library in Hawaii.
2. Decide if you want a three month card for $10 or five year card for $25.
3. Bring photo ID, proof of permanent residence (a checkbook with your name and address will do), plus temporary address.
With your library card you can check out books, rent DVD’s for a dollar a week, select CD’s for your Discount Hawaii Rental Car and use library computers for up to an hour a day. Some libraries even have 15 minute express computers.
Libraries do not let Wi-Fi users charge their computers or print documents. You can, however, print from library computer stations for 15 cents a copy. That works great for printing your boarding pass.
If you have tips on where to find Internet access in Hawaii, let us know in the comment section. During my recent American Safari cruise of the Hawaiian islands with Inner Sea Discoveries – which you’ll be hearing about soon – the libraries on each island were a convenient air conditioned location for wireless internet in Hawaii.
