Borrow and return services of public libraries gradually resumed

From 21 May, following the earlier opening of the Hong Kong Central Library and the six major libraries (namely City Hall, Kowloon, Tsuen Wan, Sha Tin, Tuen Mun and Ping Shan Tin Shui Wai Public Library), other 12 district libraries (namely Aberdeen, Chai Wan, Lockhart Road, Lai Chi Kok, Lam Tin, Ngau Chi Wan, Yau Ma Tei, Fanling, Tai Po, Tiu Keng Leng, Tsing Yi and Tung Chung Public Library) will be reopened with limited services, including lending and returning of library materials, and picking up of library materials reserved. All reopening libraries will implement special opening hours, arrange admission by sessions and limit the number of people entering the library. Members of the public will be subject to body temperature checks before admission. Children aged under 12 are allowed to enter the library only when accompanied by an adult. Library facilities to be reopened include adult library, young adult library, children's library, partial computer facilities and Students’ Study Room. Other facilities including newspapers and periodicals area, reference library, etc., will remain closed. Please refer to the Details.

Other facilities resumed earlier include the book drop service of the Hong Kong Public Libraries (including service at MTR Central, Kowloon Tong and Nam Cheong stations) and the self-service library stations located at Island East Sports Centre Sitting-out Area, the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and Tsuen Nam Road, Tai Wai.

Other public libraries and their students’ study room, and mobile libraries will continue to be temporarily closed until further notice. Overdue fines will not be generated for late return of library materials, and due date of reservation pick up will be extended accordingly.

"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.

 

Activities Organised by the Library-on-Wheels

  • Borrowing of Books through Self-service Equipment
    About 300 Chinese and English books on a specific theme will be selected for registered readers of the HKPL to borrow through self-service equipment. Patrons are also welcome to return books borrowed from Hong Kong Public Libraries through the bookdrop.
  • e-Reading Experience
    Patrons can experience the fun of e-reading, borrow and read e-books and e-magazines anywhere and anytime, and explore a wide range of HKPL’s e-databases for knowledge acquisition or leisure reading.
  • Reading Promotion Activities
    Interactive activities such as colouring, fun crafts and quizzes will be held on a regular basis. Themed book displays, story-telling sessions and cultural programmes will be organised on Saturdays and Sundays. Activities on public holidays will be announced in due course. Please visit Latest News for details.
