Due to the impact of typhoon “Hato” last month, the facilities, electrical system and air conditioning equipment of the Patane Library of the Cultural Affairs Bureau were severely damaged. The repair, maintenance and inspection works are now concluded and therefore the Library will reopen to the public on Wednesday, 27 September.

In addition to the newspaper and magazine reading services, the Library also provides other services, such as access to the general and children’s collections and lending of audio-visual materials. The Library is open from 2pm to 8:30pm on Mondays, and from 9:30am to 8:30pm from Tuesdays to Sundays, except on public holidays.
