NCompass Live: Addressing the Legal Information Needs of Immigrants and Non Native Speakers - Recorded Online Session 


Northlake (IL) Public Library District has seen a dramatic demographic shift over the last twenty years. More than half of the service community speaks Spanish at home and as many as one third are foreign born. To address the changing needs of their community, Northlake Public Library District has hired bilingual staff and added many bilingual programs. One pressing issue that directly affects this community is the U.S. immigration policy and getting accurate information on these policies. This session will focus on how Northlake Public Library District has incorporated legal information on temporary driver's licenses, Deferred Action, and citizenship into its library programming.

Presenter: Kathy Ladell, Bilingual Outreach Librarian, Northlake (IL) Public Library District.
