Welcoming Week: September 8-17, 2023

Join us at the Malden Public Library for Welcoming Week on September 8-17, 2023. Celebrated in communities around the globe, Welcoming Week is an annual campaign that connects neighbors of all backgrounds through community-informed activities and events. Welcoming Week provides communities the opportunity to publicly proclaim welcoming values, foster a mutual understanding between immigrants and non-immigrants, and build a deeper sense of belonging for all.

Throughout Welcoming Week we will provide information about local community organizations, including resources for English classes, immigration & citizenship information, food & housing information, and more. We will also have some craft kits available.

This year we will have a special event on Saturday, September 16, 2023: 10:00-11:00am for “Coffee, Cookies, and Conversation.” Meet your neighbors in a relaxed environment for a cup of coffee and great conversation!

And don’t miss our Movie Night on Wednesday, September 20, 2023, from 6:00-8:00pm. We will be showing a recent and excellent South Korean film about “Past Lives,” which features the immigrant experience and outstanding performances by Greta Lee and Teo Yoo. All events are co-sponsored by The Friends of the Malden Public Library.

Malden Public Library welcomes you!
