Welcome Stranger: Public Libraries Build the Global Village

The Urban Libraries Council in the U.S. has just created a new document titled Welcome Stranger: Public Libraries Build the Global Village.

“In March 2007, ULC conducted a survey of its members, gathering data on the ways in which urban public libraries are involved with the transition of immigrants into American life. The findings of the survey, augmented with data collected in another 2003 member survey, are summarized in this report. They show that urban public libraries are in the forefront of the effort to make their cities stronger by welcoming and integrating new residents from all over the world.
