Books for New Americans

Kathleen Hasbrouck, lead teacher for infant and toddlers at the newly opened Center for New Americans in Northampton, MA, dropped by to pick up boxes of board books for this very worthy program.

The Center for New Americans (CNA) is a community-based education and resource center that provides immigrants and refugees in Hampshire and Franklin Counties with education and resources to learn English, become involved members of their communities and obtain tools necessary for economic independence. CNA has locations in Amherst, Greenfield and Northampton. Services include English classes (ESOL), family literacy activities, computer-skills education, citizenship support, employment training, volunteer tutoring, and information and referral services.
