The new Chinatown branch of the Chicago Public Library is light-filled as well as full of books. It has an extensive collection of Asian language books. The children's part of library has educational toys as well as books. There are frequent programs for young children and school-age children. It is located close to the Chinatown el stop and to Chinatown restaurants and shopping.

This particular location is very fun and the location is accessible to the Chicago River Branch as well. The Red Line CTA train is nearby. In addition, there are plenty of shopping markets to buy anything that you might need.
