LCSD launches channels for "Collection of Views on Library Collections"
     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department has launched new channels for "Collection of Views on Library Collections" today (July 6) to enable members of the public to express views more easily and conveniently on the collections of the Hong Kong Public Libraries (HKPL) with a view to further ensuring that the collections’ contents are appropriate, do not contain objectionable contents (such as those which exaggerate violence, pornography and vulgarism), violate the laws of Hong Kong or endanger national security.

     â€‹Should members of the public perceive that any parts of the collections are suspected of being contrary to the law or contain objectionable content, they can express their views via a designated form or email their views to bookreport@lcsd.gov.hk. Paper forms (see Annex) are available at any branch libraries of the HKPL or are downloadable at www.hkpl.gov.hk/bookreport. When filling out the form, public members are required to submit information on the library material in question, including title, relevant part, page number, text paragraph. While public libraries will follow up in accordance with the information provided on the form, including possibly removing library materials from the shelves for review, no replies will be given for each opinion received. The data collected will be dealt with strictly in accordance with the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance and will not be disclosed to any third parties.
