The Library Champions Project (LCP) is a three-month volunteer program for new immigrants. During the project, Library Champions are trained to conduct outreach to other new immigrants. Four training sessions focus on building communication, presentation and outreach skills and on the range of programs, services, and resources that are available in libraries and out in the community. After the training, Library Champions develop a three-month outreach plan that is doable and fits their schedule. The outreach plans include sharing information with friends, family, colleagues and individual community members, giving group presentations, speaking with community agencies, and using social media.
