North Lamma Public Library to reopen on Monday after reconstruction (with photos)

     The North Lamma Public Library (LMNPL) will reopen at 10am on June 24 (Monday) after reconstruction. The floor area of the LMNPL has been expanded from about 70 square metres to some 177 square metres and offers a collection of over 27 000 items for people of all ages and interests.
     Apart from increases of both the floor area and the collection, the new LMNPL will introduce a self-charging service and more Internet and digital service workstations to assist public use of library materials and access to online and library electronic resources. More seating is also available. Window seats in the new LMNPL chime with the library's concept of "reading by the sea", offering residents a pleasant and diversified reading environment.
     The LMNPL will be open from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 6pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and from 10am to 1pm on Sundays and public holidays. It is closed on Thursdays.
     The new LMNPL, located at 1 Yung Shue Wan Main Street on Lamma Island, will replace the provisional library service stop located at Yung Shue Wan Plaza Road. The library service stop will cease operation on the same day.
     The new LMNPL is located on the first and second floors of the new three-storey building, while the ground floor accommodates the Heritage and Cultural Showroom. It is one of Islands District's projects under the Signature Project Scheme.
