The Welcoming Library
(I'm Your Neighbor Books, 2021)

The Welcoming Library is a pop-up conversation on immigration.

That conversation is driven by a collection of 30 acclaimed picture books featuring New Arrival and New American families. Readers of all ages “meet” these families on the page and explore the commonalities shared by all families. This exploration is done with I’m Your Neighbor Books-created discussion questions as well as companion programming and education materials. The collection,  with its pop-up display unit, packs into two crates and travels between schools, libraries, and community centers in a given region, building an environment of welcoming and belonging.
