Richmond Public Library recently received a generous donation of 500 Chinese language books from the Association of Chinese Cultural Promotion – Canada. It includes books for adults and children on a wide range of topics on Chinese culture.
“This significant donation will enrich our existing Chinese language collection and we’re extremely grateful to the Association of Chinese Cultural Promotion – Canada for their commitment to learning and literacy,” said communications officer Shelley Civkin. “It is by working together with community groups and organizations that we can continue to build our collection and provide excellent services to our community.”.
