We hope to make use of library materials as easy as possible and our friendly circulation staff is available to make sure you are able to borrow library materials with ease. Some things to remember:

  • New library users will need to show proof of Chaminade affiliation (e.g. current CUH ID) and complete a short application form.
  • Most of the general collection can be checked out. Some materials are restricted to library use (Hawaiian/Pacific collection, magazines, newspapers, etc.). See the loan page for more information.

We have rooms available for academic group study or Chaminade affiliated functions.  Please note:
  • Group rooms accommodate 2-5 people.
  • Valid, current Chaminade ID is required to check out rooms.
