The library at the new Chinatown Northbeach campus is fully functional, but some features will be introduced over time. “There’s still a to do list for the rest of the year,” Library Coordinator Daniel Bradford said. He explained that there are private study rooms for students to reserve and they have two library assistants that are fluent in both English and Mandarin. They still have to fix the operating systems on the computers, he said, but in the meantime there are plenty of outlets for students to plug in their own devices.
