Hanover Public Library partnered with the Adult Learning Centre in Walkerton to offer English Second Language Coffeehouses to the newcomers in the area. We offer a monthly venue for new Canadians to meet, socialize, practice English conversation, and exchange information about experiences in Canada. Refreshments are provided and the information that our guests exchange is priceless. Many do not know where to turn to discuss assorted problems – shared information and peer support help them cope. Library staff attend and help with information. This is a highly popular program, and makes an enormous difference in people’s lives.
