About the International District Chinatown Branch

The new International District/Chinatown Branch opened June 11, 2005. It was the 16th project completed under the "Libraries for All" building program. The branch is located inside International District Village Square II. Long hanging lamps illuminate a ceiling canopy made of ribbons of wood.
