Library Activities

Reading Circle

Reading Circle is a new initiative in HLC to gather avid readers to share their learning experiences. Every year, 3 sessions are organized. These sessions involved students and teachers sharing the books that they have read – Chinese or English, printed books or e-books. Audience may also ask questions to the presenters. We are happy to see so much enthusiasm in previous sessions of Reading Circle and we hope more HLCians will join the activity and immerse in the reading world.

Mobile Library

Mobile Library is placed on the Ground Floor to promote a sharing culture. Books placed at the Mobile Library are free and students are encouraged to return the books to the Mobile Library once they have finished the books. Students and teachers may also place books that they would like to share with others at the Library. This promotes not only a reading culture at HLC, but also environmental friendliness. Instead of putting used books into the recycling bin, why not sharing them through the Mobile Library?

Visit to Central Library

To cultivate team spirit, develop leadership among Library Prefects and hone their skills to better serve our patrons and to be a librarian in future, visits are organized for Library Prefects to learn more about library services. A visit to the Central Library in Causeway Bay was organized in January 2023. Students learnt more about the different sections in the Central Library. Moreover, they were guided to locate information online and use the database available to the public. With what they have learnt from visiting the biggest library in Hong Kong, this prepares them to better serve patrons to HLC Library.
