Reading Public Library warmly requests your attendance for Stories of Reading, a panel discussion providing the opportunity to hear key stories from community members, as well as to participate in an honest conversation about the immigration experience in our city.
Stories of Reading is an event that will provide insight and knowledge about immigrant communities; the issues they face, and how this affects the way they relate to American culture.
Join us at noon on Monday, January 15, in the Main Library located at 100 South Fifth Street, and be captivated by the following stories of our devoted city residents:
