About the Char Study Room

Char Room ViewThe Char Asian-Pacific Study Room was established on the second floor of the library in April 1992, with a donation of five hundred books and journals from Tin-Yuke and Wai Jane Char. Their generous gift of personal collection and endowment formed the core of a unique library collection on local ethnic history of Asia and the Pacific.

The Char Study Room serves as the focal point for research on Asia and the Pacific, and as a sponsor for programs and activities to heighten community awareness of the Asian and Pacific issues. Many of activities are part of the College's Asian Pacific Emphasis. This cross-curricular emphasis is coordinated by the Honda International Center.

The Char Room is the most unique place on KCC campus. Special care has been given to create a serene and refined atmosphere. The College Administration is very proud of this room, and as a result of the mission and plans for the Char Room, we coordinate the full schedule of Asian-Pacific activities co-sponsored by the Library, community groups, and international agencies and institutions.
