PLA Service Response Workbook: Welcome to the United States: Services for New Immigrants

New immigrants and refugees will have information on citizenship, English Language Learning (ELL), employment, public schooling, health and safety, available social services, and any other topics that they need to participate successfully in American life.

Is helping providing Services for New Immigrants in your community a service priority in your library now? Do you think it may become a service priority in the future? What types of services and programs might you provide to support this priority? In this PLA Service Response Workbook you will find tools to assess your current services in this area and to identify what would be required to expand those services.
