Chinese Language Collections

"Ni Hao" means "greetings" in Chinese and was the name selected for the library's Chinese language collection. The Ni Hao program is the largest public library collection development program in the country for general Chinese readers.The emphasis is on publications of modern literature by best-selling authors from the 1920s through the present. In addition to adult and children's books, all Ni Hao collections have magazines, newspapers, CDs, and videotapes. Collections are balanced in terms of place of publication (Taiwan, China and Hong Kong), reading level, and subject matter. We also consider the preferences and needs of Mandarin and Cantonese speakers in selecting non-print materials. The Chinese Periodicals Subscription List, which includes newspapers and magazines for all Ni Hao collections, is the most comprehensive list of its kind of any public library in the U.S.
