20 June is World Refugee Day, designated by the United Nations to honour refugees around the globe. This year’s theme is ‘Every Action Counts’.
Nancy Bolt and Despina Gerasimidou (Denver Public Library) provide an update on IFLA activities and the role of libraries in serving immigrants and refugees.
At the global level, the IFLA Section on Library services to people with Special Needs (LSN), for which Nancy is chair, is working on its International Guidelines for Library Services to Refugees, Immigrants, Migrants, and Asylum Seekers.
