SACRAMENTO — Sacramento Public Library invites immigrant and refugee families to participate in a program designed to make connecting with community fun, safe and welcoming.  Saturday’s program will focus on Language. The process-based art project, led by the Art Beast organization, will address the question, “What is wonderful about your language?”  We hope that you will come join us at the Arcade Library where you can expect to:

  • Meet your neighbors in a friendly place.
  • Participate in a family art activity
  • Have fun during playtime
  • Enjoy read-aloud stories for children
  • Snacks will be provided
  • Interpreters will be present

Parents and children arme welcome. This program is supported by California Humanities’ Library Innovation Lab Grant Program. To find out more about Library Innovation Lab, visit our webpage here. “Library Innovation Lab: Exploring New Ways of Engaging California’s Immigrant Communities”– The Library Innovation Lab pilot project will provide training, support, and resources to a cohort of programming librarians, enabling them to design and implement new public humanities projects that will reach and engage underserved immigrant groups in their communities during the program period. Through an open call application, ten libraries were selected to receive $5,000 each to participate in our first round of the Library Innovation Lab grant program. This grants program will help build capacity within California libraries to develop creative and innovative programs that will respond to the needs and circumstances of today’s immigrants and immigrant communities and foster more inclusive communities within our state.
