ARE Resource Library Rates, Rules & Available Materials

Visit us at the Center for Architecture Monday – Friday from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM, or email for alternate hours.

Here you can browse our ARE Resource Library and borrow study materials, one division at a time, for a 4-week consecutive period.

4 Weeks $0 $40
+2 Weeks Renewal $0 $20

Check out requests will be processed on a first come, first served basis.

A one-time, 2-week extension can be granted permitted no other member has requested the material. To request an extension, you must contact AIA Honolulu before the loan due date.

If the materials you request are currently checked out, you can be placed on a waitlist to be notified as soon as they are available.

Materials must be returned in good condition (no personal annotations, please). If returned in a condition deemed unsatisfactory, you will be invoiced for the full replacement cost.

A $5 per day late fee will be charged, payable prior to the next loan. We reserve the right to suspend any loaning privileges for lateness, un-returned, and/or damaged books.
