I Am an American Diversity Program

Posted on: December 22, 2008

The “I Am An American” program is a two-hour session that features immigrants who came to the United States and made this country their home. Immigrants from different countries are asked to participate in a panel discussion. Panelists tell their stories of making the decision to immigrate to the United States and share details of their journey. They speak of the challenges of being an immigrant and how libraries can help. This model is perfect for bridging the gaps and laying a foundation of understanding based on shared values. It is a great way to discover the richness of our communities.
