It is not easy to spend money to buy books from China to the United States, 2021 In June, under the strong efforts of Chairman Huang and President Li, the East Valley Chinese Association finally got a small room dedicated to the association, so under the planning of the two, the original intention of the East Valley Chinese Association to open the Chinese library was simple. It is to provide a place for children and adults to read Chinese books, hoping that Chinese culture will continue to be reserved for the next generation in the American environment where these little Chinese immigrant children grow up to have access to Chinese books.
