The title of the conference is “Seguimos Creando Enlaces Presents: An Immigration Summit.” March 8, 2018 will take place at San Diego Central Library in San Diego, CA and March 9, 2018 will take place at Universidad Autónoma de Baja California in Tijuana, Mexico. The conference will explore public and academic libraries’ role as a modern link, “enlace”, of free information access.
As always, we welcome an emphasis on partnerships with other libraries, sister cities, cultural institutions, and/or community-based organizations. If your library has a particular collection, program, or unique approach on:
1). Supporting the educational goals of binational, immigrant or refugee communities
2). Connecting Spanish-speaking library users to current services in your community or
3). Creative and impactful approaches to reach your immigrant or refugee community.
Here are some keywords to inspire you: immigrant, refugee, families, undocumented, history, community, language, relationships, knowledge, skills, sanctuary, stories, shared humanity.
