The Toronto Public Library system is ready to welcome Syrian newcomers. You will find ESL classes, resumé-building workshops, books, movies, and newspapers in Arabic, Kurdish and Armenian. With a MAP (Museum and Arts Pass) available to anyone with a library card, you are allowed free access to museums and other cultural attractions in Toronto. Fourteen branches have settlement workers who can help finding jobs, accessing English classes, or assist in getting a driver’s license, among other services.
Libraries are the one place where newcomers can find everything they need.
