Chinatown Chicago Public library
Working together, we strive to provide equal access to information, ideas, and knowledge through books, programs, and other resources.
We believe in the freedom to read, to learn, to discover.
A new 16,000-square-foot, two-story Chinatown Branch opened August 29, 2015, with a partially covered “living” roof, Feng shui-influenced interior design and expansive views of the city.
Library service to the Chinatown community began in 1972 in a small storefront on Wentworth Avenue. An 11,000-square-foot rental facility was dedicated September 28, 1990.
The branch serves as a cultural and information center for those who seek information about the Chinatown community and Chinese culture. Read more
absolutely awesome they really are fab just wonderful excellent nice job fast efficient affordable educational happy and easy going.ting tow wing wow that say you guys are awesome.
Chinatown Chicago Public library is a great place for all ages to go and visit. New building and the librarian is very nice lady and informative. The first level has conference rooms, children's section and the second floor is for the adults and youth age kids. Computers are on both floors and access to the internet wifi is free.
This moved Chinatown library is so much better than the old location! Uniquely designed, light, airy, and organized. There is a self check out section located right by the "holds" section that makes ordering and picking up a breeze.Original recommendation
A definite must visit: friendly staff, a great kids section, community rooms, computers, and plenty of books in English.
Great awesome service from the teen service and the new clerk guy. The alarm goes off all the time.Original recommendation
The brand new facility rocks! Spacious and well set up, literally weeks old....easy parking, lots of study space, free private community rooms for teaching, events, activities and all. So happy for the loop residents and their tax dollars!!Original recommendation
The new and expanded 2-story branch is sparkling at Wentworth and Archer. A festive opening on Sat., Aug. 29 was attended by Mayor Emanuel. It was punctuated by the traditional firecrackers and lion dancers that fittingly inaugurate most Chinese facilities. Many Chinese and non-Chinese from outside the neighborhood came for this special occasion. ...Original recommendation
