Quiet Reading Room

Yee's memoir follows her journey from Hong Kong to mainstream 1960s midwestern America, navigating between dual cultures. Yee's grandfather started the Far East restaurant, which became Wing's.

I BELONG HERE follows Helen Yee’s journey from a cloistered Chinese childhood into mainstream 1960s midwestern America, navigating between dual cultures and revealing events that cause her to reimagine traditional concepts of family. Yee courageously pursues her own version of love and romance while training for the Olympic Taekwondo Team and discovers the destiny-changing power of massage and acupuncture and a future calling.

In person registration is requested.

About the branch

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.

The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
