...definitely, it’s a superb resource, huge in size and has a lot of variety, with books available in many languages (though mostly Canto, English and Mandarin, obviously). As somewhere to visit, maybe it’s worth a look, not sure if tourists come here. The architecture is...More

Between the toy library, the entire second floor dedicated for children... this library has so many books that it’s hard not to like. The children’s section is particularly nice with all of our favourite books. Would highly recommend to go with families and especially on...More

This is the biggest public library in Hong Kong. You can find many Chinese and English books here. A great place to spend a day.
