Regulations for Borrowing and Returning

1. Regulations for borrowing and returning

Holders of Breakthrough library cards may borrow the following items:

1. A total of 10 Chinese and English books, Hong Kong information packages and audio-visual materials. The loan period is two weeks for books and one week for tapes. Special arrangements can be made at the discretion of the Librarian.

2. Renewal:
The loan may be renewed once if the item is not booked by another person.

3. Overdue fines:
A fine of HK$1 is imposed for each day overdue, with Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays excluded for such calculation.

4. Lost or damaged items:
Borrowers will have to compensate for the loss or damage by paying the market price of the item plus an administrative charge of HK$30.

5. If the borrower fails to return books or pay outstanding fees, his or her rights to borrow at the library shall be temporarily suspended.

6. A fee of HK$20 is charged for the replacement of a library card.

2. Book Returning Service

Members of Breakthrough Library can return borrowed materials to Breakthrough Library at Breakthrough Youth Village (Shatin) or Breakthrough Gallery. Should any overdue items be returned to the Breakthrough Gallery, overdue fines incurred are to be paid to Gallery staff on duty (HK$1.00 item per working day for late returned materials). Due to transit duration, members who have returned the materials to the Gallery can only enjoy borrowing privileges once the library staff at Breakthrough Village has received their returned materials and overdue charges (usually about 7 working days) in good order.
