What Library Champions say about the Project

Libraries have a wealth of resources to help newcomers settle, but immigrants aren’t always aware of them. Library Champions, who are all dedicated volunteers, get out into their communities to spread the word about what public libraries have to offer.

The sharing of experiences among new immigrants like myself and I was comforted to know that I was not alone in the often challenging journey of starting out in a new country.

I have learned a lot from this project not only the English but also so many useful information and communication skills. The top three benefits that I have gained from this wonderful experience are self-confidence, friendship, and happiness. Thank you so much for every help and encouragement that you gave me in the past four months!
