Latest arrangement on services of Hong Kong Public Libraries

In view of the latest situation of COVID-19, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) will adopt further measures to maintain social distancing. From 2 December (Wednesday), the Hong Kong Central Library, six major libraries and 31 district libraries with their Students’ Study Room will implement special opening hours to provide limited services including lending and returning of library materials and picking up reserved library materials. 32 small libraries and mobile libraries will be temporarily closed until further notice. 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 will continue to provide services. During the period, public libraries will maintain the precautionary measures which include limiting the number of people entering the library and arranging cleaning break between sessions. Other library facilities including newspapers and periodicals areas, Computer and Information Centres, computer facilities, as well as hiring facilities, will be closed. Please refer to the Details.

Introduction

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.
