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.

This program opened my eyes to a new world of possibilities. Before, I knew about library facilities, but now I think that libraries can change people’s lives. I will still keep sharing information over social media and recommend participation in this project to everyone.

The whole LCP project provided me a wonderful start to connect with the new community and the culture. The feeling is like the door opened. And you showed me exactly how Canadian work professionally in a very warm and friendly way. On the other side so impressed how VPL involved and impacted people’s life. I will try my best to let more and more people like me to know that.

Having the Library Champion volunteer experience on my resume basically got me an education and a great job. I owe you a lot.:)

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