2020 – Established Two Community Libraries: Xuejun Community Library (学军公益图书室), Yuxian, Hebei & Youyang, Chongqing, China

One of our dear supporters, Dr. Xuejun Zhao passed away last year. His wife Dr. Haiyan Shi, our dear board member, dedicated his memorial fund to CHAFF. We are very honored to name the two libraries after Dr. Zhao: “Xuejun Community Library”:

The first library is in Yuxian, Hebei, and is a village library benefiting pre-school and elementary school aged children both in the village and several surrounding villages. This is the only countryside library in the area.

The second library is in Youyang, Chongqing, conveniently located on a public street to benefit many elementary and middle school aged children.

Our volunteers have been working hard to generate a book list for each grade level with different topics such as literature, science, early development, social development, fantasy, art, parenting, teacher’s books, etc. A good list for the elementary school levels has already been developed.
