Royal Asiatic Society Shanghai in China Library Grand Re-Opening – 23rd September

Posted: September 4th, 2017 | 1 Comment »

This is very good news after a slightly hasty relocation….

Royal Asiatic Society Shanghai in China Library Grand Re-Opening

It is with great pleasure we announce the grand re-opening of the library of the Royal Asiatic Society (RAS) China in Shanghai, located in the House of Roosevelt building on the Bund. The Roosevelt Club has provided a beautiful space on the third floor for the RAS library, which will be a resource centre and a quiet place of study for all RAS members. The RAS library will also host selected events and programs on the RAS calendar. The new library is near the site of the original RAS building, which is now the Rockbund Art Museum.

This move would not have been possible without the coordinated efforts of the management team at the House of Roosevelt, the office of the British Consulate General in Shanghai and supporters of the Royal Asiatic Society China, whom we gratefully acknowledge.

Our grand re-opening will take place on Saturday 23rd September at the library. Please join us in celebrating this event at the ribbon cutting ceremony, followed by drinks and hors d’oeuvres in the Roosevelt Club’s private bar.

Date: September 23, 2017

Time: 5:00-8:00 pm

Location: The House of Roosevelt, 3rd Floor

Address: 27 Zhongshan Dong Yi Lu (near Beijing Dong Lu)

中山东一路27号3楼, 近北京东路

RSVP: bookings@royalasiaticsociety.org.cn


Please note that the Roosevelt Club has a dress code of smart business casual (please, no jeans, shorts or flipflops), and that this event is for adults over the age of eighteen. Thank you for understanding.
