Graduate and Special Borrower Card holders
The Library has already extended the validity of Graduate and Special Borrower Library Cards for 48 days from their original expiry dates (on or after 21 Jul 2020) because of the inaccessible period between 21 Jul and 6 Sep 2020.

For items whose due date falls within the inaccessible period between 21 Jul and 6 Sep 2020, please return them on or before 21 Sep 2020 otherwise fines will be incurred. Library items can be returned via the Library’s 24-hour Book Drop located outside the campus turnstiles on Podium Level (near public footbridge towards Exit A Hung Hom MTR Station) when the Library is closed.
