Hong Kong Public Libraries to be reopened from 29 September resuming normal opening hours

The Hong Kong Central Library (HKCL), six major libraries and 31 district libraries have been reopened earlier (17 Sep).  From 29 September, all other 32 small libraries and mobile libraries will resume service. All reopened public libraries and their students’ study rooms will resume normal opening hours. To help ensure public safety, libraries will continue to implement precautionary measures, including arrangement of cleaning sessions. Please refer to the Details.

With the resumption of book drop service, self-service library stations and reopening of all libraries with normal opening hours, counting of overdue fines shall be resumed from 19 October 2020. Readers are advised to return the overdue items in order not to incur overdue fines.


The Hong Kong Public Libraries of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department has launched a pilot scheme to set up three Self-service Library Stations, one each on Hong Kong Island, in Kowloon and the New Territories. These stations provide round-the-clock services, such as borrowing, return, payment and pickup of reserved library materials.

Presently, many readers choose to pick up reserved library materials at the Self-service Library Stations of the Island East Sports Centre Sitting-out Area and Tsuen Nam Road, Tai Wai. Due to the limited storage space at the Self-service Library Stations, reserved library materials need to be put on shelves on a queuing basis, readers may take a longer time to pick up their reserved library materials. During this period, the status of the reserved item will be displayed as “Transit Hold”. If reader wishes to change the pick-up location to other libraries, please contact the Self-service Library Station Office at 2891 9355 from 9 am to 5 pm, Mondays to Saturdays for the arrangement.
