All reopening libraries will implement special opening hours, arrange admission by sessions and limit the number of people entering the library. Members of the public will be subject to body temperature checks before admission. Children aged under 12 are allowed to enter the library only when accompanied by an adult. Library facilities to be reopened include adult library, young adult library, children's library, partial computer facilities and Students’ Study Room. Other facilities including newspapers and periodicals area, reference library, etc., will remain closed. Please refer to the Details.

Other public libraries and their students’ study room, and mobile libraries will continue to be temporarily closed until further notice. Overdue fines will not be generated for late return of library materials, and due date of reservation pick up will be extended accordingly.

Public libraries to revise charges for additional services


31.05.2017

A spokesperson for the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) announced today (May 31) that from September 7, the charges for certain additional services including replacement of lost library cards, reservation of library items, self-service photocopying and computer printout services will be revised.

After revision, the new charge for the replacement of a lost adult and junior library card will be $33 and $17 respectively, and the reservation of library items will be $3.3 per item. For self-service photocopying, computer and microform printout, the charge per page will also be revised at different rates, while the first free copy of computer printout will be cancelled. In addition, for non-Hong Kong residents using a temporary library card, the refundable deposit will be $170 for each library item borrowed. For details, please visit www.605221.buzz/en/about-us/services/fees/revise-fees.html .

“Since the establishment of LCSD in 2000, the fees and charges of the public libraries have remained unchanged, and the charges for most items have been maintained at the level of the 1980s or 1990s. The department has therefore conducted a comprehensive review to align the fees and charges of public libraries in the urban area and the New Territories, as well as to reflect the change of price level over time,” the spokesman said.

“The public continues to enjoy free access to the facilities, services and various extension activities offered by the Hong Kong Public Libraries (HKPL), so as to meet the community's needs for knowledge and information, self-learning as well as constructive use of leisure time. HKPL also provides additional services on a fee-charging basis in line with 'user pay' principle. LCSD from time to time reviews the fee arrangement for various additional services of HKPL with a view to ensuring the optimal use of library resources and improving the cost-effectiveness and quality of services.” the spokesman added.
