The South Asian Month Festivities on May 25th at the Red Hill Branch Library in Hamilton featured appearances by a number of Newcomers who have benefited from the Library Settlement Partnerships program.
Citizenship and Immigration Canada, as part of LSP this year, has supported participating libraries so they can purchase materials needed by newcomers. Thousands of books, many new newspaper, periodical and database subscriptions are now available throughout the province on topics important to newcomers, particularly in the areas of language learning and employment.
LSP at Ontario Library Association Conference 2010
On Friday October 23, 2009 The Library Settlement Partnerships (LSP) program organized its first ever LSP Day in each of the 11 Ontario communities where LSP service is delivered.
The purpose was to celebrate this proven partnership that helps the lives of newcomers in our communities.
Each community organized its own distinct event or events to share information and celebrate this partnership in its own way. As reports and pictures come in, we will be sharing them with you here. Please click here for some preliminary images of events in Toronto, York (Markham, Vaughan, and Richmond Hill), Brampton and Hamilton. Visit the site often to see updated pictures and media coverage of the day.
