The Mary Chan Public Library

Here’s my post from 2010 about the naming of the new library on Hastings. Mary Chan should receive the honour. Here’s the survey link to suggest a name for the new library.

What Floats to the Top of My Desk

There is a movement to have the new library on East Hastings named in honor of local resident Mary Chan. Mary was instrumental in organizing the Strathcona Community against urban renewal and the freeway. Her daughter Shirley says “Mary worked hard to canvas community support for the Strathcona Community Centre and as a former teacher in China and tutor in Vancouver, she would be so proud to be associated with a library.”

Warm those pens up and send letters to Mayor and council and the Library board. this is a great idea.
