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.

Each time, we would share our stories and feelings with other champions, and that made me feel connected.

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!
