Resources to serve immigrants and refugees
December 5, 2017
1:00-2:00 p.m. Central Time (Chicago Time)

Join us and learn about resources such as Libraries Respond, Project Welcome, and Refugee Libraries to help you serve immigrants and refugees. Librarians and information workers are providing programs and services that build community while enriching and saving lives of immigrants and refugees. At the IRRT, we want to be part of these efforts.
