Library Champions Project helps newcomers in Langley

Info session to be held March 11 at Muriel Arnason Library

Langley newcomers looking to get Canadian work experience while making new friends are invited to an info session for the Library Champions Program on March 11.

During the project, Library Champions are trained to conduct outreach to other new immigrants. The LCP’s four training sessions focus on building communication, presentation and outreach skills and on the range of programs, services and resources that are available in libraries and out in the community.

The info session will be held at Muriel Arnason Library from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., attendees will learn about the resources available in the libraries and in the broader community.

Any Langley resident who is a permanent resident and over 19 can participate in the program.
