Partial reopening of Public Libraries from 19 February

From 19 February 2021, the Hong Kong Central Library, six major and 31 district libraries reopened their adult library, young adult library, children's library; and offer lending and returning of library materials and collection of reserved items. The libraries implement special opening hours, limit the number of people entering the library and adopt other precautionary measures (including users are required to scan the "LeaveHomeSafe" QR code or register their names, contact number and the date and time of the visit before admission). Please refer to the library notice on the Details.

Book drops of the Hong Kong Public Libraries and self-service library stations will continue to provide service.

Calculation of overdue fines will be resumed from 5 March for all library items borrowed before the reopening of public libraries and not returned or successfully renewed before 5 March, except those borrowed from the mobile libraries. 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.
