Celebrate Welcoming Week 2020 with/@yourlibrary! September 11-20
WHAT IS WELCOMING WEEK?
Welcoming Week is an annual series of events where neighbors, immigrants and long-term residents come together in a spirit of unity. These gatherings demonstrate that in places large and small, people of all backgrounds can come together and create stronger communities by building meaningful connections and affirming the benefits of welcoming everyone.

By hosting a Welcoming Week event, you and your library will join communities across the globe that recognize that welcoming each and everyone of us makes our communities stronger economically, socially, and culturally.
