Termination of HKCSS Reference Library Service


With the wide application of advance information technology in modern days, in addition to the availability of many enhanced and efficient channels for obtaining information of social service, the service demand of the Council’s Reference Library located on 14/F, Duke of Windsor Social Service Building, 15 Hennessy Road, Wanchai, Hong Kong, has been decreasing significantly over the past few years. To cater for the future development of the Council’s membership service, with the effectiveness of operating cost taken into account, please be informed that the service of the Reference Library will be terminated with effect from 1st April 2018.

Upon the closure of the Reference Library, annual reports of member agencies will be filed by Membership Liaison and Service (MLS), which will be available to Council members and the public for perusal, upon request, during office hours in the MLS Office. In view of the limited storage space, only annual reports of recent two years from member agencies will be provided for public perusal.

Please also be informed that the consignment service for publications published by member agencies will cease upon the closure of the Reference Library. Members who wish to purchase materials published by member agencies are requested to contact the publishing agencies direct.

To facilitate exchanges and interaction among members, a multi-purpose zone is being planned by making use of part of library site. Details of which will be announced in due course.

We would like to express our gratitude to your support to our library service in the past. For enquiries, please call Membership Liaison and Service at 2876 2459.
