“Hope Through the Eyes of an Immigrant”


Throughout the month of July, the Port Washington Public Library presents their exhibit “Hope Through the Eyes of an Immigrant.” The essays included in the exhibit were written by the library’s English For Speakers of Other Languages students. Students of all levels were instructed to write about their hopes after moving to a new country. The exhibition aims to allow the library’s patrons to learn about the diversity of their town and read their peers’ narratives.
