"Joyful Reading at Your Neighbourhood: Library-on-Wheels" Pilot Project

To further promote a city-wide reading culture, the Hong Kong Public Libraries (HKPL) will enhance library outreach activities and launch the "Joyful Reading at Your Neighbourhood: Library-on-Wheels" Pilot Project in January 2020. A specially designed truck will turn into the Library-on-Wheels and visit locations with heavier pedestrian flow but far from existing library facilities in a convenient manner. About 300 books on a specific theme will be selected for readers to borrow. Self-borrowing and returning equipment and tablets are also available. The pilot project aims to promote theme-based reading, library self-charging service, e-books, electronic resources and online services, and familiarise non-frequent library users with the vast resources and accessible services of public libraries.

The pilot project will also dovetail the "Joyful Reading at Your Neighbourhood - Pop-up Library 2020" with diversified and vibrant outdoor activities to promote reading and library services in the community in weekends or public holidays.

 

Activities Organised by the Library-on-Wheels
