    Computer users who tried to access the Hawaii State Library website libarieshawaii.org got this screen instead.

The Hawaii State Public Library System’s website at www.librarieshawaii.org went offline due to technical difficulties Tuesday and library officials are unsure when it will be back up, according to a statement from State Librarian Richard Burns.

Computer users trying to access the site went to a godaddy.com template that said the certificate for the web domain had expired on Monday.

Workers were trying to figure out what went wrong, Paul Mark, library spokesman, said, but said no other library services have been affected.

Patrons can still access the library’s electronic borrowing site at hawaii.lib.overdrive.com and are asked to call or visit their local library branch for help.
