We all have a part to play in building safe, welcoming and inclusive communities.
Public libraries play an important role in welcoming refugees and people seeking sanctuary in our communities.
Libraries of Sanctuary is a network of librarians, library staff, community groups and book lovers who are raising awareness of the issues facing people in the asylum system, offering support and participation opportunities, and contributing to a culture of welcome in the wider community.
The Library of Sanctuary award recognises and celebrates the libraries that go above and beyond to show solidarity and welcome. Any library can apply for the award, and we are there to support you every step of the way.
