I’m Your Neighbor Welcoming Library
June 11, 2018 @ 8:00 am - June 22, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
The I’m Your Neighbor Welcoming Library is a portable book collection and display of acclaimed picture books featuring the immigrant, refugee, or “new arrival” experience.
Given the national conversation about immigration, the I’m Your Neighbor Welcoming Library seeks to raise awareness and build sensitivity for all ages through children’s literature.
Studies have shown that reading builds empathy and that cross-racial scenes in picture books build acceptance. Making this collection of 22 picture books available at no cost to schools and libraries, we hope to lift the financial barrier to reading and sharing these important books.
