◗ IN THE LIBRARY
New to Canada? Library offers help email@example.com
f you are new to Canada, make a visit the New Westminster Public Library one of the first things you do. Apply for a library card. It’s free and it lets you use our resources. Our English as a second language (ESL) collection includes books, CDs and DVDs that can help with grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, writing, and TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) and other tests. You’ll also find books written for ESL, some with CDs so you can listen to the book while you read it. Our web page, at www.nwpl.ca, has links to ESL sites that have exercises to improve your skills, as well as links to legal and medical resources, foreign credentials and employment, and newspapers and magazines. If you want to read a newspaper from your home country, go to Press Display. This database has 500 current newspapers from 70 countries in 37 different languages. The Citizenship and Information Canada site is in our Canadian Citizenship links.
Order your copy of Discover Canada, the official study guide for the citizenship test, by following the link. The library has copies to borrow while you wait for yours. If you’re studying for the citizenship test, or if you want to learn more about Canada, register for our free citizenship classes. Offered in partnership with MOSAIC, they are held at the library every second week on Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. To register, phone Ismat at 604-5223722 ext. 155 or email isimo@mosaicbc. com. You are also invited to join our ESL conversation circles. These are held at the library in partnership with Fraserside Community Services. The women-only circle takes place on Friday mornings from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. The Saturday morning circle from 10 to 11 a.m. is open to everybody. Come prepared to make friends and to join in stimulating conversations. Books like Arrival Survival Canada by Naeem Noorani, How to Find a Job in Canada by Efim Cheinis, and You’re Hired … Now What? by Lynda Goldman may answer some of your questions.
