Richmond Public Library gets donation of Chinese language books

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.”.

Richmond Public Library’s collection of Chinese language books contains over 63,000 items for adults and children. The library also offers a range of programs in Cantonese and Mandarin, in partnership with a number of community organizations.

The Association of Chinese Cultural Promotion – Canada was formed in 2007 as a non-profit organization, and promotes the Chinese heritage and culture through special events and community gatherings.
