Project Welcome: Libraries and Community Anchors Planning for Resettlement and Integration of Refugees and Asylum Seekers

We invite you to Project Welcome, our website for libraries seeking to better serve refugees and asylum seekers.

The Mortenson Center for International Library Programs, in partnership with the American Library Association (ALA) sought to learn and articulate ways libraries can address the information needs of refugees and asylum seekers in their resettlement and integration process. IMLS funded “Project Welcome,” to help libraries that wish to provide programs and services for immigrants living in their communities by learning from USA and international library services who are already serving this community. The end result of Project Welcome would be a Guide for library staff and stakeholders on how to serve refugees and inform other community members on issues affecting refugees.
