The School Library

The school library, as a resource centre, serves to provide our students with a variety of reading materials, comprehensive learning facilities and a comfortable environment, supporting the learning and teaching on campus and acting as a channel through which students may acquire knowledge and gain access to a wide range of information.

In the light of perfecting library services, the school library underwent renovation during the summer of 2018: New facilities were installed to cater to students’ learning needs, and a rich assortment of books and reading materials were procured to enrich the library collections. Besides upgrading our facilities, the library organises a wide range of activities in collaboration with various subjects in order to strengthen the reading culture among our students and empower them to learn beyond the confines of the classroom. 

The library after renovation

The library was renovated with a modern design, prioritising comfort and providing ample space for students to read at their leisure. The new library consists of open stacks, a reading area, self-study area, multi-media learning zone, an island for new books display and a discussion room.

Open stacks
The library stores up to twenty thousand items, inclusive of books and reading materials published in both English and Chinese.

Reading schemes and activities

After renovation, the library offers better facilities to help promote reading and library activities. The discussion room is the venue for reading circles and movie appreciation, creating opportunities for teachers and students to appreciate books and movies, share their views and have discussions that can lead to meaningful reflection.

E-books and book sharing are two of our major focuses. While students can read e-books on the iPads available in the library, they are also encouraged to build a reading habit and share their interest in reading with people around them. Junior forms students are required to keep a monthly record of the books that they have read in Reading Footprints, a log book designed to help them develop a reading habit. The school has also started a book sharing forum, ReadChat, where students and teachers make book recommendations and share their feelings and thoughts after reading.

The library also aims to foster and strengthen the reading culture within the school by hosting a variety of activities, such as writer talks, Chinese and English book exhibitions. Students are also encouraged to participate in various reading schemes and competitions outside school to immerse themselves in extensive reading, such as Kowloon City District Youth Program 2018 Reading Award Scheme, Popular Reading Award Scheme organised by the Hong Kong Professional Teacher's Union, Harvard Book Prize organised by The Harvard Club of Hong Kong.

Students visit the newly furnished library during lunchtime and after school hours for leisure and self-study. The library will continue to evolve to meet the needs of our students, fostering the learning and reading culture of the school.
