MEXICO CITY - The first China-themed library in Mexico was inaugurated in late April to promote a cultural exchange. Books on Chinese history, art, culture, traditional medicine and music as well as digital and video archives, can be found at the new Chinese Library at Mexico City's Anahuac University.

Officials from China and the prestigious private university were on hand to inaugurate the 14th library of its kind worldwide, as part of celebrations marking 45 years of diplomatic ties between the two countries.

The Chinese Library serves as "a window that will allow Mexico to better know our country, and it will also be a new platform for deepening educational, academic and cultural exchanges", says Cui Yuying, the deputy director of China's State Council Information Office.

Cui says she hopes China and Mexico "can work together and continuously invest in the construction, administration and use of the Chinese Library, with the goal of turning it into a true cultural bridge that connects the two countries and a window that fosters bilateral friendship".

The library boasts 6,000 books and 80,000 digital archives with information on China's politics, economy, culture, science and technology, education and history.

The 120-square-meter facility is equipped with large-screen monitors for viewing some 100 hours of video and virtual reality featuring China's different regions, ethnic groups and lifestyles.

Chinese language students will find special software, in both Spanish and English, to learn Mandarin.
