New Immigrants, New Approaches

With continuous news stories and rhetoric about “illegal” immigrants and “Islamification” of the Western world, how you change the conversation about “new arrivals” and welcome our diverse neighbors into the library community?  This workshop will present research demonstrating the power of diverse books to reduce prejudice, guidelines and programming models for sharing diverse immigrant stories with communities, book lists, and other resources.
