Libraries have programs and events that help immigrants settle and connect. Libraries offer conversation practice groups, activities for babies and children, help with career planning and job search, book clubs, citizenship test preparation, and much more.
Programs and events at libraries are free and open to everyone. Some are offered in the library and some are online.
