The University Library has a strong focus on planning for the future. The current Library building was opened in 1977 but no longer fully meets the needs of the increased PolyU's students and staff members. Our goal is to raise additional funds necessary for two purposes:
- To have the capacity 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
Thanks for Your Support!

Mr Daivd Mong (the sixth from left), Chairman of the Fund, hoped the donation could facilitate the implementation of the new four-year undergraduate curriculum, encouraging students to appreciate the pleasure of reading and receive all-round education.
