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.

During this program I found lots of new friends from different countries and different cultures. I appreciate that this program not only helps newcomers but also helps me to find new friends and to understood that I am not alone in this multicultural country.
