About the event



In a time when libraries are supporting people seeking sanctuary more than ever, this webinar organised by Libraries Connected will introduce the Libraries of Sanctuary resource pack and explore good practice from libraries who have achieved Libraries of Sanctuary recognition.  It is aimed at librarians and we hope that local groups will encourage their local library staff to attend.

Around the world, more people than ever are being forced to flee conflict, changing climates, environmental degradation, and persecution to find safety and sanctuary elsewhere. Public libraries welcome people seeking sanctuary and other new arrivals into their community and seek to foster a culture of welcome and inclusivity. Public libraries and City of Sanctuary are working together to develop provision including the production of a Libraries of Sanctuary resource pack, which is available as a PDf file online or a printed version  to order.

Join this webinar to learn more about the Libraries of Sanctuary programme and hear from library services who have achieved Libraries of Sanctuary recognition.
