Geocache Description:

澳門中央圖書館 / Macao Central Library / Bibliotecas Central de Macau


The library was formerly the National Library established in 1895. Situated in St. Augustine’s Church, it originally belonged to Liceu de Macau (Liceu Secondary School). The Macao Central Library underwent severe challenges throughout its development. From 1917 to 1929, it successively moved to St. Joseph's Seminary, Hotel Bela Vista, Shelter for the Disabled at Tap Seac and Leal Senado Building (currently known as IAM Building). Settling there for a longer period, in 1983 the library was relocated to the current site at Avenida do Conselheiro Ferreira de Almeida, where it has gradually developed.

Today, the services of Macao Central Library are diversified. In addition to providing basic services such as library card application, photocopying, access to the Official Gazette of the Macao Special Administrative Region, book lending and access to newspapers and periodicals, the library also provides a microfilm reading service, Macao information references, back-issue newspapers and periodicals, broadband internet access, electronic news, electronic databases and other services.

To cater for readers’ needs, the interior of the library was refurbished in early 2007, where space and seats for readers were added, furniture was renewed and amenities were introduced. The two-storey main library currently occupies an area of 1,371 sq. m., with seating capacity for about 271 plus a collection of approximately 92,289 volumes (including approximately 31,764 volumes of Macao Information Collection), 672 rolls of microfilms, 4,069 audiovisual materials, 94 newspaper titles and 610 magazine titles. Generally, the collection is mainly comprised of information technology books, English and Portuguese books as well as Macao information and historical literature about Portugal in the Far East.
