Come join APALA for a tour of the Chinatown branch of the Chicago Public Library (9am) and the Chinese-American Museum of Chicago (10am). It'll be followed by lunch (pay on your own) together at Joy Yee Noodle House.

Since first opening our doors in 1873, The Chicago Public Library has served all Chicagoans with free and open places to gather, learn, connect, read and be transformed. The 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.

The mission of the Chinese-American Museum of Chicago (CAMOC) is to promote the culture and history––through exhibitions, education, and research––of Chinese-Americans in the Midwest. The museum building, formerly the Quong Yick Co., is located in Chicago's Chinatown, at 238 West 23rd Street in Chicago. The Museum opened to the public on May 21, 2005. After a devastating fire in September of 2008, the Museum was closed for renovation and reopened in 2010.
