Smart Book Returns

Smart Book Returns are set up at at MMW Library foyer on Tai Po Campus and outside Tseung Kwan O Study Centre Library.  Library users may deposit EdUHK Library books on loan to them into the Smart Book Returns  and the books will be scanned automatically and returned instantly.  Therefore users can return items 24 hours at MMW Library and any time when TKOSC is open.

Please note that the following items should not be put into the Smart Book Returns:

  • All non-book materials, e.g. media, serials
  • Overdue books
  • Books too big or too thick
  • Books with media materials
  • Fragile books
  • Non-EdUHK Library books (including HKALL books)

Books inside the Smart Book Return which cannot be scanned automatically for whatever reason will be manually handled by staff afterwards.  Books which require manual handling collected in the first round each day will be treated as being returned on the day when library counters were last open.

For enquiries, please call the Circulation Counter at 2948-6658, or email to
