Friday April 20, 2012 was a special day for Toronto Public Library when 16 government officials from the Multicultural Families Division of South Korea's Gyeonggi Province visited our libraries as part of a tour across the United States and Canada to learn more about immigration issues.

The delegation consisted of directors, researchers, and staff members of local divisions of departments related to migration, social welfare, women, and families.

Dawna Rowlson, Library Service Manager, hosted the Korean Delegation while the Multicultural Services Committee shared information about the various programs that the Toronto Public Library offers.

The delegation continued their tour in Toronto visiting CERIS, COSTI Immigration Services, and other organizations with links to immigrants and newcomers to the city.

We hope you enjoyed your visit to Toronto!
