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.

I’ve been in Canada for two years. This program is the best thing that happened to me in those two years. I loved outreaching, meeting people, giving them bookmarks and other pamphlets.

I’d like to thank everyone. This program helped me stay here and to keep moving all these months. Without this program I would not stay in Canada. Participating here motivated me in very challenging times. I hope we will all stay in touch. You were all so supportive.

The way this project helped us sharing the experiences was really priceless. Thank you for helping us with this experience and giving us a clue to get integrated much easier, both for ourselves and the other ones we met. I really couldn’t say thank you enough.

I’d like to thank you for encouraging our library champions to outreach to other newcomers. It became the way I feel I am helpful and useful after I moved to Canada. I am so proud of being a library champion.
