ALA's Public Programs Office recently completed a year-long exploration of public library programs and services that support immigrant, refugee and displaced persons populations. This initiative, originally titled the “New Americans Library Project,” included a landscape review, library site visits and consultation with a panel of public library and community-based organization staff. This session will review project findings such as opportunities and challenges in programming, existing resources and initiatives to help facilitate strong library public programming, gaps in service that could be addressed through training or other resources, and opportunities and challenges involved in library partnerships with community organizations.
