Fire Destroys most of Museum of Chinese in America’s collection (MOCA)

Dear ACRL/NY Chapter Members,

Last week a devastating fire destroyed much of 70 Mulberry Street in Chinatown, NY. Located alongside homes and non-profit businesses that were affected by this tragedy was the Museum of Chinese in America [mocanyc.org](MOCA).

The Executive Board of the Greater Metropolitan New York City Chapter of ACRL would like to show our support for MOCA by sharing their GofundMe [charity.gofundme.com] page which was started in order to support the loss of over 85,000 one-of-a-kind objects and materials in their archives.

More information regarding this tragedy can be read here [newyorker.com].

On behalf of the Executive Board of ACRL/NY,

Joan Jocson-Singh
ACRL/NY, Chapter President 2020
