For first time in 50 years, Chinatown has a library

City officials this morning formally opened the new Chinatown branch in the China Trade Center, on Boylston Street at Washington. The location is intended to be open for three to five years as the city looks for a location for a permanent branch.

The library includes bilingual staff and books, newspapers, magazines and DVDs in both English and Mandarin, as well as computers and WiFi.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday.

They used to be the same network

At some point, Cambridge, Brookline, and I think a few other suburbs jumped off BPL's network and onto Minuteman. Only Chelsea and Malden are still part of BPL's network.

It hasn't been a food court since the '80s or early '90s as far as I know.
