The Pohnpei Public Library today received a donation of books and cash. The Embassy of the People's Republic of China donated three large boxes of books covering a wide range of subjects on China from regional histories and explanations of their political system right through topics of China's National Defense.

Counselor LI Cuiying of the Embassy presented the books saying that she hoped that they would help provide useful information about her country that the Library doesn't currently have. Visitors who were at the library at the time were asked to be part of the photo.

She also presented  a check in the amount of $1,300.00 for use of the library.

The Pohnpei Public Library is a non-profit organization.
