Latest arrangements on services of Hong Kong Public Libraries



In the interest of public health, to avoid people gathering and to foster social distancing, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) will continue to adopt special measures at the library facilities. The number of seats and computer facilities is reduced to maintain social distancing. Measures include limiting the number of people entering the libraries. Members of the public need to use hand sanitiser and will be subject to body temperature checks before admission. They also need to wear their own masks in the libraries. The libraries will strengthen the cleaning and disinfection of the facilities in the libraries, in order to ensure the normal operation of the ventilation system and maintain indoor air circulation.

In accordance with the Prevention and Control of Disease (Vaccine Pass) Regulation (Cap. 599L) and relevant requirements of administrative instructions, all persons entering or remaining in the libraries and their SSR must comply with the requirements of the Vaccine Pass pertinent to premises subject to passive checking of Vaccine Pass. Details on the Vaccine Pass requirements can be found at

The LCSD will pay close attention to the latest development of the pandemic and review or revise the above reopening arrangements in due course, and adjust relevant preventive measures as and when necessary.
