The description of the event.
Valley Neighbors and ImagineIF Libraries created a partnership in 2022 to encourage immigrant and refugee families in the Flathead to learn about opportunities at the library and around the community. Public libraries are an ideal setting for newly arrived neighbors to learn about their community, make connections, and access services. Libraries across the state have an opportunity to create partnerships and build relationships that help serve immigrant and refugee communities.
Johnny Skinner, a decade long Flathead County resident, first saw a need to engage the greater Flathead community after local reactions and attitudes towards refugees in 2016. Johnny works to make our community a more welcoming community through Valley Neighbors, a non-profit dedicated to providing support and services to immigrants and refugees both locally and regionally.
Ashley Cummins is the director of ImagineIF Libraries. Prior to her move to Montana she worked in libraries in her home state of Alabama. She has a keen interest in kittens, kayaking and karaoke.
Deidre McMullin is the manager of ImagineIF Bigfork. Her favorite parts of her job include readers' advisory, messy storytime activities, and shiny new books.
