Public library opening hours during Lunar New Year holidays
     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department today (January 28) announced that Hong Kong public libraries, including the Hong Kong Central Library and the mobile libraries, will be closed at 5pm on Lunar New Year's Eve (February 4), except for those libraries closed on Mondays and the Provisional North Lamma Public Library Service Stop which will close at 4.30pm.

      All public and mobile libraries and students' study rooms will be closed from February 5 to 7.

      Moreover, due to the periodic inspection and testing for electrical installations, the following services will be suspended from 5.30pm on February 4 to 7:
- library mobile app services as well as Internet and telephone renewal services;
- other online library services, including the library catalogue, borrowers' record enquiries, reservation of library materials and Internet and Digital Service Workstations, the Multimedia Information System and electronic resources (e-Books and e-Databases); and
- the self-service library stations (readers may return books to the stations before the due date, and the loan records will be updated on the next working day).
     Details can be obtained from notices posted at all public libraries and the website at www.hkpl.gov.hk/en/library-notices/library-notices-list.html. For enquiries, please call 2921 0208.
