Settlement Services in the Library

Through LSP (Library Settlement Partnerships), we bring newcomer services to your local library. LSP workers speak a variety of languages, and can help newcomers find information to become connected to the community. We have a partnership with the public libraries in Richmond Hill, Vaughan, Markham, Aurora, Newmarket, Stouffville, King, East Gwillimbury, and Georgina, in Ontario, Canada.
