Register to become a Library Champion

Posted on: August 8, 2022

The NewToBC Team is always looking for new Library Champions! Since 2013, more than 150 people are trained each year as Library Champions across Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. Beginning in Winter 2021, the Library Champions project is expanding its online delivery to offer the program to immigrants in communities and regions across BC.

The Library Champions Project (LCP) is looking for newcomers who are:

  • A permanent resident, but not yet a Canadian citizen
  • 19 years of age or older
  • Enthusiastic about libraries
  • Interested in volunteering in the community to share information about library and settlement resources with other newcomers

To become a Library Champion you must attend an information session. Register for an information session.
