From the Past to the Present

The library was set up in 1996. At the initial stage it comprised the Circulation Section, Collections Section, Reading Section, Audio-visual Room, and Computer Section. It was relocated to Block A in 2006 to meet adaptation plans to make way for the construction of the new block. Then a full-equipped library comprising of 6 Sections (Circulation Section, Collections Section, Reading Section, Audio-visual Room, Computer Section and Gamer Corner) was launched in March 2008 (Block B). Now those who have re-visited SSCPS will have noticed our brand new library which set up in November 2016, located at 2/F, Block G.

With the help of a generous support from our parent volunteers, we have completely rebuilt a large new library which is now stocked with a wide range of new books. To increase library usage, we have adopted “genre-fication” for shelving Chinese and English books by genre (rather than by alphabetical order of author’s last name).

The library has a collection of about 22083 items, 50% of them are Chinese, and 50% are English. There are over 1500 items of the serial and non-book information category.

System and Classification

We change shelving system from Dewey Decimal System to “Genre-fication” and sort through old collection and integrating into new collection. In order to help our young readers to quickly locate the books they are looking for, we have incorporated a floor plan with each section highlighted in its corresponding book classification colour. As you can see in the pictures below, the book shelves in each of these book categories (Picture Books, Fictions and Non-Fictions) are highlighted in their corresponding colour codes. Students can simply check the floor plan of the book category, locate the shelf highlighted in the colour/classification (Fantasy/Adventure/Humor......) under which their books belong to and go directly to the shelf to look for their books.

How to Apply for a Library Card

In order to widen students’ scope of exposure to reading materials, the barcode on library cards used by public libraries will be adopted. Students in possession of a library card from the public library can borrow books both from the Public Library and the School Library.

It had been the School’s intention to make mass application, however, on discovering that it will take over a month’s time, it was decided it would be better for students to make individual applications, which are processed on the spot. In view of this, it is hoped that parents will help students with the application so they can use the School Library. Details are as follows:

  1. Application should be made before the first day of school. (Guidelines listed below)
  2. Students are to be instructed to sign their name on the back of the card, and bring the card to School after school re-opens for information update purposes.

How to apply (for persons under the age of 18):
  1. Complete and submit an application form (Form no. LCS4) at any branch of the Hong Kong Public Libraries (forms can be downloaded from the website or obtained from the Public Library and filled in on the spot).
  2. The “Guarantee” section of the application form must be completed by either the applicant’s parents or guardian.
  3. The applicant must also produce the following documents for verification:
    1. The original copy of the Hong Kong Identity Card or in its absence, the photocopy of the birth certificate;
    2. The original or photocopy of the guarantor’s Hong Kong Identity Card; and
    3. sThe proof of residential address issued within the last 3 months (e.g. water/electricity/gas/telephone bill, etc.).


  1. In the event of a student already in possession of a public library card with barcode, regardless of the period, the application for a new one is not necessary.

Book Recommendation

Recommend a good book

This has been well-received by teachers, pupils and parents. When the new term commences, the library will carry on with the good tradition to recommend new good books to pupils.
