HKLA 60th Anniversary


HKLA 60th Anniversary

2018 is an important year for HKLA as we celebrate our 60th Anniversary. We are a registered non-profit association, working to promote librarianship in Hong Kong, offering opportunities for professional growth, networking, and community service. Our members are drawn from the public, academic, school and special library sectors, as well as students of library and information science.  Our activities include organizing workshops, seminars, visits to libraries with new and exciting developments, awards and bursaries for students, as well as keeping our members informed via our website and social media. For our 60th Anniversary year we are focusing on how librarianship can support sustainable development in Hong Kong.
