The Living Library features newcomers with unique and compelling stories of transition, settlement, and belonging. Organizations and individuals can book a featured newcomer to share their story at a gathering, staff event, or classroom to learn more about the newcomer experience and different cultures.
Booking a speaker is free, however, donations to support the work of the New Canadians Centre is welcome.
This program is offered within the counties of Peterborough and Northumberland. Depending on location, organisations may be asked to cover the cost of transportation.
