Banner of Fun Day

To encourage members of the public to discover and share the joy of reading, the Hong Kong Central Library hoisted the 'Fun at Central Library' fun day on 22 April, to give readers an extraordinarily out-of-the-box library experience and bring them to know more about the collections and facilities on different floors. Laughter filled the library in-and-out. Visitors were thrilled and excited to find different activities and performances on various floors of the library building, such as the exhibitions 'Discovery of Conservation Tools' and 'Discover Hong Kong in Miniatures', musical performances and 'music on demand', storytelling workshops and various games, thematic storytelling sessions, book repair workshops and saxophone performances.
