We here at Urban Librarians Unite believe that libraries can be a source of social good and a key vector to improving our society. One of the areas that libraries have been doing incredible work in is immigrant and refugee services. Libraries in America are working every day to help people become citizens, learn English, and find their place in the society.
We are trying to support that important work by making resources available to libraries serving refugees. This is a huge topic and we are not pretending to be experts in this field. Our goal is to gather information, make it as widely available as possible, and do whatever we can to secure resources for libraries serving these populations.
Please join us in the effort and share any information or contacts which you have in this area. We need researchers and practitioners to help build this into a resource that can help vulnerable members of our society.
