Please refer to the Details.

Calculation of overdue fines has been resumed from 5 May for late return of library items. Readers are advised to renew their borrowed items on time or return the overdue items as soon as possible in order not to incur overdue fines.

Hong Kong Literature Collection

Start date:

April 1994 

Coverage: Documents on Hong Kong Literature
Location: Hong Kong Literature Room , 8/F of Hong Kong Central Library
Type: Reference Material, available for public use in the library
Introduction: The Hong Kong Literature Collection was first built in 1994 when the ex-Urban Council Public Libraries launched a “Writer-in Residence Programme”and appointed incumbent, Mr. LIU Yi-chang to edit a “Who is Who in Hong Kong Literature” . The Hong Kong Literature Room collects books, manuscripts, letters, portraits, clippings, historical documents and the collection owes debt to the generous donations by quite a number of citizens who have contributed greatly to preserving the relics of local culture. Readers can read the materials in the Hong Kong Literature Room and access to the Hong Kong Literary Authors' Database of some 1,000 authors' biographies, bibliographies of works and criticism of literary authors via the workstation there. Besides, readers can also make use of the Multimedia Information System to access the authorized digital materials.
