Starting Immigration Services at Your Library (Free webinar)

This is a free webinar presented in partnership with ALA Office for Diversity, Literacy & Outreach Services

Map of the continental United States with diverse population represented and FREE bannerAre you interested in learning how to incorporate immigration services into the library? PLA and the ALA Office for Diversity, Literacy, and Outreach Services (ODLOS) have invited the Immigration Advocates Network (IAN) to share valuable information about their free online tools—immi and Citizenshipworks—which can be used to expand the capacity of your citizenship corner and provide people with self-guided immigration legal assistance. IAN will also discuss the ways libraries are currently using immi and Citizenshipworks in its branches. In addition, two public librarians engaged in working with the immigrant population in their communities will give examples of citizenship workshops and other programs at their libraries aimed towards immigrant patrons.
