Immigration Webinars for Public Libraries

On Thursday, December 12, at 12:30 Eastern Time (9:30 Pacific), the Institute for Museum and Library Services will hold the first in a series of free webinars for public libraries about immigration and U.S. citizenship issues. 

The webinar series was developed as part of a federal partnership between IMLS and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)to ensure that librarians have the necessary tools and knowledge to refer their patrons to accurate, reliable sources of information on immigration-related topics.

The webinar is titled “Immigration and Naturalization 101.” Those presenting include Susan Hildreth, IMLS Director;  Rachel Ellis, Branch Chief of the Customer Access Branch, Public Engagement Division, USCIS; and Haleh Holly Taghavi, Management and Program Analyst, Public Engagement Division, USCIS.
