The Library is excited to announce the opening of the new internal lift and the new mezzanine floor for public use today (1 August 2022). This opening also marks the completion of the renovation project phase 1, which has spanned through 6 years. Many parties have worked with us for this opening and the renovation. We sincerely thanked the hard work of the architect consultant team, the main contractor, CO and ITSC colleagues for the planning, coordination with different vendors and working parties, budgeting, monitoring of the construction work, the installation of various services and facilities, resolution of safety and other operational issues, and their close collaboration to complete this challenging task in times of COVID-19 pandemic. The most important is your patience and understanding. All library staff would like to say a big thank you to all users who bore with the noise and dust during renovation, and the inconvenience the delay has caused.
