Land a Job In Your New Land
Not only did it help in her adjustment to a new country, she also got a job – first a temporary job as a financial deduction analyst, then four months later as a permanent senior deduction analyst for a local company. Summing up her experience at the library, Beatrix said, “I was able to talk about topics connecting to my profession, but only used about 300 words when I started. It helped increase my confidence, vocabulary and pronunciation. I used to be afraid if someone asked about the weather. Now I can make casual conversation.”

From newspapers on microfilm to actual tangible books (gasp!), huge selection of movies and music... and after the recent remodel, the library looks modern and stylish. I urge residents of Arlington Heights to come spend an hour exploring what the library has to offer. There’s something for everyone!”

Above all, both sessions emphasized that the need to take an active role in parenting applies to the world of technology. As a parent, I need to be just as aware and involved in the technology my daughter uses as with the other aspects of her life. I should be discussing the latest apps with her just as we would communicate regarding her homework assignments. Finally, already aware of the strength of both our school district and library, I was impressed by the partnership between the two and the focus on identifying and meeting the needs of the parents in our community.”
