Peaks Island Elementary School will be hosting the Welcoming Library from April 22 to May 6, and on Thursday, April 25, from 6:15 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., the school will host a community event to introduce the library to Peaks Island families.

The Welcoming Library is part of I'm Your Neighbor, a literacy movement founded by Curious City to draw attention to immigration children's literature and begin the sometimes difficult conversation about who belongs here, welcoming, assimilation and celebration of difference.

Kirsten Cappy from Curious City books will open the April 25 event and talk about the Welcoming Library. Author Anne Sibley O'Brien will read one of her books that is part of the visiting library. Also planned are small group discussions about what it is like to be new.
