This guide helps libraries create or expand services to immigrants, refugees, and new Americans, regardless of their citizenship status. It includes quotes and examples from libraries around the country and discusses the history of immigration in the US, how libraries have responded to immigrants, immigration terminology, and current events; the major categories of programs and services for newcomers, namely making library buildings and websites more accessible to speakers of different languages, approaches to English-language literacy, aiding newcomers along the path to citizenship, workforce development and job services, and cultural celebrations and sharing programs; how libraries can facilitate community building through outreach, partnerships, and conversations; and how to initiate and expand programs through promotion, data-driven evidence, and funding.
