Library Settlement Partnerships Week 2016: Celebrate with Dance
Join us on Thursday October 20th, at 1pm, in the Atrium of the Toronto Reference Library, for Library Settlement Partnerships (LSP) Week 2016: Celebrate with Dance. Celebrate the LSP program with us, and learn about newcomer services and programs. Refreshments will be served, and all are welcome.
Toronto Public Library's LSP Celebrations 2015 involved music, and this year, we chose dance. Enjoy a performance by Esmeralda Enrique Spanish Dance Company & Academy of Spanish Dance. As it states on their website, founder Esmeralda Enrique is "one of the most celebrated Flamenco dance artists in Canada,.. lauded internationally as a both a choreographer and teacher... [and the company is] renowned for its innovation, versatility and artistic excellence".
Toronto Public Library partners with other service organizations to provide free assistance with many aspects of settling in Canada as a newcomer. At the Toronto Reference Library, we partner with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada and the YMCA's Newcomer Information Centre. We call this Library Settlement Partnerships, or LSP. We offer help at the Newcomer Information Desk, one of several locations in Toronto Public Library, as well as a series of information sessions.
Our New to Canada landing page includes information about Settling in Toronto, as well as where you can Learn English, find ESL & Fun programs for children, information about the Citizenship Test, and resources related to Jobs, Training and Certification, and more.
Also check out our New to Canada blog, to find more information and resources available from the library and around Toronto to new residents of Canada.
