This Centre will stage the 4th I·CARE Book Festival in March of this year. We are now cordially inviting CUHK staff, students, alumni and friends to donate obsolete books at home so as to let them be revitalised from the lonely bookshelves for passing down to the next generation of CUHK people.

In 2012, the I·CARE Programme organised the first-ever I·CARE Book Festival with staunch support of alumni and teachers like Kin-sheun Louie, Lo Wai-luen, Leo Ou-fan Lee, To-kwan Lam, Felix Chao, Chan Joseph Man, Cheung Chan-fai and Jasminia Kristine Cheung. We collected over 10,000 books for students’ viewing, and each student was allowed to pick a maximum of 5 books for free.

In 2013 and 2016 respectively, the I·CARE Book Festival was re-run for each of which we received more than 20,000 second-hand books. Thousands of students benefited from the enthusiasts’ donations. While the response was proven overwhelming, the book festivals had achieved their goals - to keep the books move, to facilitate knowledge transfer, to foster reading culture and to connect different CUHK people through sharing of books.

For enquiries, please call this Centre at 3943 8621 or email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .



The book collection will be completed on 8 February 2019 (12:00 noon) due to overwhelming response.
Thank you for the support. Please stay tune on the I·CARE Book Festival in March.



The name of donors who give 40 or more books will be displayed on the I·CARE Book Festival web page as a token of gratitude of the I·CARE Centre for Whole-person Development.
