Did you know that 40% of the 2.6 million people living in Brooklyn speak a language other than English at home? To celebrate the melting pot that is our borough, learn about other cultures, or discuss your own background, join BPL for events in honor of Immigrant Heritage Week, April 15-21.
Some highlights include:
- One City, Many Poems* programs at over 20 locations
- An Immigrant Heritage Health Series in Spanish
- Author Talks with Chinese and Ukranian guests
For more events, and further information on the above events, visit our Immigrant Heritage Week page.
And if you’d like to learn a new language or take out books in other languages, visit out Multilingual Center.
*One City, Many Poems is made possible by a grant from the Brooklyn Community Foundation and in partnership with Poet's House
