The I’m Your Neighbor Welcoming Library is a portable book collection and display of picture books featuring the immigrant, refugee, or “new arrival” experience. imyourneighborbooks.org This traveling library of 26 books is now available at the library in November. The books cannot be checked-out, but please take some time to come in and browse them, with or without children. Every book has a series of discussion questions affixed to the inside back cover. Those questions walk readers (of all ages) through a conversation about commonalities and welcoming. Regardless of the readers comfort or experience with discussing race, religion, or other cultural differences, the questions guide the reader. We are also displaying artwork and photographs to compliment this exhibit.
