Giving to Library

Join us in shaping the future of PolyU Library
The University Library is the learning hub of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), offering a dynamic learning environment with a multitude of educational and research resources. As part of the strategic developments of the PolyU Library, the Library Extension and Revitalisation Capital Works Project (2020-2023) has transformed the Library into a modern learning hub. An additional floor have been constructed on top of the Library building and the existing library facilities have been revitalized to cope with the needs of the modern learning environment. We are committed to enriching our resources, modernizing our learning spaces and library services to address the evolving needs of our students, staff and library users.
Giving from PolyU alumni, staff, students and donors from all sectors of the society is highly appreciated. Your generous support will enable the PolyU Library to strengthen our capabilities to realize our missions and achieve the following goals:
  • To create excellent research collections in digital or print form
  • To create even better learning environments in the physical building which would not be normally possible
We call on your continuous support to the PolyU Library! Find the best giving option that is fit for you:

For cash or other donation in-kind to the University, please refer to Give Now of the Office of Institutional Advancement. 

Your generosity will have far-reaching implications for the future of the University and its next generation of students.

Thanks for Your Support!
Donation from Shun Hing Education and Charity Fund
In 2023, Shun Hing Education and Charity Fund donated HK$3M to support three flagship programmes of the Library, namely READ@PolyU, MakerMindset@i-Space, and Outstanding Work by Students, further to its generous donation of HK$2M for the former two programmes in 2018.
  • READ@PolyU Our vision is to equip PolyU graduates with a lifelong love of reading. We continue to place an emphasis on reading, and reading books, to counter an increasingly “fast food” education culture. We do this by taking an “established” approach by helping our students develop traditional literacy and reading skills in the digital era.
  • MakerMindset@i-Space Our vision is to help students interface with emerging technologies as a means to develop a creative, curious, and can-do mindset. Technologies will obsolesce, so our investment is in nurturing the right mindset via technologies to help our graduates lead the future. The upgraded and refurbished i-Space facilities will serve as our main practice field for students in this “pioneering” engagement programme.

    The project “i-Space: A Makerspace and Community for Students of All Backgrounds at the University Library” launched by the Library of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) has won the Regional Silver Award in Asia-Pacific and Cultivating Curiosity Bronze Award of the QS Reimagine Education Awards 2020.

  • Outstanding Work by Students Our vision is to preserve and showcase learning-to-learn experiences from a wide range of exemplary works by undergraduate and postgraduate students, inspiring new ideas through sharing of knowledge across disciplines.

    The project “Empowering Lifelong Learning: Outstanding Work by Students Portal and Exhibition” was shortlisted for the Lifelong Learning Award at Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Reimagine Education Awards 2023.
