This is a bookmark from the Chinatown Storefront Library in Boston, MA. This isn't a branch of the Boston Public Library, the Chinatown Branch was demolished to make way for a highway project in 1956. Chinatown has been without a library since then.
The Storefront Library project is just what it sounds like; a temporary library in a vacant storefront, to bring library services back to Chinatown, if only for a few months.
