Latest arrangements on services of Hong Kong Public Libraries

To tie in with the Government’s latest anti-epidemic measures, members of the public must comply with the requirements of the Vaccine Pass and are required to scan the "LeaveHomeSafe" QR code or register their names, contact number and the date and time of the visit before admission for necessary contact tracing if a confirmed case is found. Please refer to the Details.

Calculation of overdue fines has been resumed from 5 May for late return of library items. Readers are advised to renew their borrowed items on time or return the overdue items as soon as possible in order not to incur overdue fines.


Donations of books and other information materials to Hong Kong Public Libraries (HKPL) from individuals and organizations are welcome. However, they are subject to the same selection process as those acquired through purchase, and acceptance generally depends on their conformity with the established selection criteria and ability to strengthen the library collection.

The following range of materials is generally not considered, unless they are of our collection focus that are related to the study of Hong Kong and of high reference and research value: -

  1. fiction and junior books;
  2. titles already in stock of HKPL;
  3. school textbooks and student workbooks;
  4. materials that are in poor physical condition (with the exception of rare books);
  5. outdated books on the subject of science, technology, business, finance, law, travel guides and computer science.

Once the materials are donated to HKPL, they are handled in accordance with the donation policy and procedures. All accepted donations should meet the collection development policy and require the approval of the Collection Development Meeting and that HKPL reserves the right to make the final decision on their retention, allocation, processing and disposal. Besides, donated items not accepted would not be returned to the donors unless prior agreement is made.

Members of the public who wish to make donations to HKPL may download the Donation Record form for completion and bring together with the materials, or a sample copy of each material, if there are multiple copies, to any of the branch libraries during the opening hours.
