Chris: Spanish Community Service Learning Students go to Champaign Public Library

The Champaign public library is frequented by many of those who come to the Refugee Center. Many of the immigrants bring their children there and practice reading books in English. I am told that the library has an extensive children’s section and is actually a fun place for young kids to hang out and play. In addition, the library has book reading events and children’s plays that encourage young kids to enjoy reading. I have not personally had to go to the Champaign public library with anyone from the Refugee Center, but I know a couple of student volunteers who have acted as translators for immigrants at the library.
