New effort to bring books and learning to Chinatown

Here’s a Globe article about a new project in the neighborhood to create a small-scale reading room in Chinatown. This is the start of a longer-term effort to create a new Chinatown Cultural Center in Boston. (Here’s a blog post from back in May with some photos of books on the move.)

We’re excited that the books from the Storefront Library, where we spent quite a number of hours in 2009-10, will all be donated to the new reading room. We’ve been helping to direct other donations to the center as well, and we love the idea of a space that can bring books, learning, and culture to street level just down the street.
