After careful review of current circumstances and out of an abundance of caution, the HLA Board has cancelled the HLA Spring Meeting. Concerns related to COVID-19 have impacted every facet of our society, including libraries. We are often the frontline of community interaction and work with many vulnerable members of our population. As each of us develop response plans to the current circumstances, we would encourage a review of ALA’s Pandemic Preparedness site (http://www.ala.org/tools/atoz/pandemic-preparedness) for library specific resources and the CDC’s Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) site (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html) and the State of Hawai‘i’s Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) site (https://health.hawaii.gov/docd/advisories/novel-coronavirus-2019/)
In the meantime the HLA Board hopes everyone will be safe and be able to make a smooth transition to serving our users during this challenge.
