Immigrant Voices Story Time: What is an immigrant? An Immigrant is a person who moves to a country from somewhere else. The great thing about our country is that it is made up mostly of immigrants. Some came here from a few generations ago, while others are just arriving. Because reading books about immigration is a perfect way to learn about new Americans, we’re going to read stories about different types of immigrant experiences. This forty five minute story time features age-appropriate books with an immigration theme and includes a related craft. This drop-in program for all ages will be held on Tuesday, March 5, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. in the Main Library Multipurpose room. No registration is required.
