At the opening ceremony of the University Library, Dr. Choh-Ming Li , Vice-Chancellor, gave a warm welcome to the guests, and Dr. the Hon. Sir Yuet-keung Kan, Chairman of the University Council, addressed the assembly. Mr. Jack C. Tang, son of the donor of the Library building, the lat e Dr. Tang Ping-Yuan, also delivered a speech on behalf of the Tang family. The highlight of the ceremony was the cutting of the ribbon at the main entrance of the building by Mrs. Tang Ping- Yuan, which marked the official opening of the University Library. The ceremony wa s well attended by staff and students of this University and by many well-known figures in educational and cultural circles. The University Library, probabl y one of the most modern academic libraries in the Far East, is in memory of its donor, the late Dr. Tang Ping-Yuan, and his father, Mr. Tang Pao-Che. Dr. Tang Ping-Yuan served since the inauguration of thi s University as a member of the University Council, and was Chairman of the Board of Governors of New Asia College and a member of the Advisory Board o f the Lingnan Institute of Business Administration. His donation o f HK$3 million towards the construction cost of this new building to commemorate his late father is but one instance of his generous assistance and support i n this University's development. "Indispensable to the Growth of the University" - add r e ss b y Dr. the Hon. Sir Yuet-keung Kan - It is an honour and pleasure for me to be invited to officiate at the Opening of the Library of The Chinese University of Hong Kong to-day. Two years ago, on 28th September, 1970 , Sir David Trench, the then Governor of Hong Kong and Chancellor of this University, laid the Foundation Stone of this Library. Now we see before us an imposing structure with great capacity. The completion of this Library building is a milestone to mark another significan t stage in the development of The Chinese University of Hong Kong. It will be an indispensable facility for teaching and research to the academic staf f and students. Since the establishment of the University Library in April 1965 , a collection of basic materials has been acquired. The Library moved its premises twice during this period, from the temporary accommodation in downtown Kowloon to the Benjamin Franklin Centre
