Join us for Welcoming Week 2021, September 10-19, a celebration with Welcoming America and the American Library Association!
Welcoming America says, "Through Welcoming Week, organizations and communities bring together neighbors of all backgrounds to build strong connections and affirm the importance of welcoming and inclusive places in achieving collective prosperity."
This Welcoming Week, let’s declare that Belonging Begins With US — that each and every one of us has the power to help others, regardless of their background, to be seen, embraced, welcomed, and included in our communities.
