Meet Shu Ming Chen:
Doctor, recent newcomer to Canada,
and proud library champion.
Support her community and
discover their local library and all that it offers.
Q: Why did you become a library champion?
A: When newcomers have just landed,
they feel isolated and anxious
in an unfamiliar community.
Language and culture barriers are
the two major factors
keeping those people away from the community.
