Reopening the Children’s Facilities of Hong Kong Public Libraries

With effect from 31 May (Monday), Hong Kong Public Libraries will reopen children’s computer facilities including the Kid’s Internet & Digital Service workstations and the Children’s Multimedia Room, and the Toy Library of the Hong Kong Central Library. Libraries will continue to implement precautionary measures (including that users are required to scan the "LeaveHomeSafe" QR code or register their names, contact number and date and time of the visit before admission), and limit the number of readers entering the library to avoid gathering and foster social distancing. Children aged under 12 are allowed to enter the library to use library facilities and services only when accompanied by an adult. Please refer to the Details.

All static and mobile libraries have resumed the calculation of overdue fines from 5 March and 3 May respectively. Readers are advised to renew or return their borrowed items on time to avoid incurring overdue fines.

Summer Reading Month

Summer Reading Month


From 2002 to 2017, the Hong Kong Public Libraries (HKPL) has been organizing the territory-wide summer programme for children, Summer Reading Month, aiming to promote summer reading and encourage parent-child reading through thematic exhibition and a variety of reading activities.

The activities of summer Reading Month are rich and full of fun. In addition to the thematic exhibition, an array of activities include parent-child talks, variety shows, interactive storytelling workshops, parent-child workshops, contest on dramatization, etc. In order for parents, teachers and children to know more about the theme, a thematic guide to books and multimedia resources in the public libraries has been prepared for further reading on the theme.
