The Blue Earth County Library received a grant from Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund to produce an immigrant story book in partnership with the Greater Mankato Diversity Council and the Mankato Area Public Schools Community Education’s Adult Basic Education. The project aims at building bridges among cultures, promoting all-inclusive community, and encouraging global ideas. The project leaders welcome first generation immigrants living in the Minnesota River Valley area to share their stories.

If you have a story to share, or if you know an immigrant who may have a narrative to contribute, please write to the project’s leaders with your name, address, phone number and description at: [email protected] and [email protected]
