"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.
