ALA Aims to Help New American Populations

ALA published “Library Programs and New Americans: A White Paper” to help public libraries better serve immigrant populations. Its content comes from a 6-month research project by ALA’s Public Programs Office and a team of public library staffers and partner organizations, which studied library offerings for new Americans, identified gaps in service, and developed a set of recommendations. The team also conducted site visits across the U.S. and held focus groups.

Melanie Welch, project director, says that “ALA has not yet undertaken a comprehensive approach toward developing a set of best practices, nor have we endeavored to start a national conversation about library services to new Americans, until now. We hope this white paper feeds the discussion and advances the public library field’s work to support the needs of immigrants, refugees and displaced persons in their local communities.”
