Commemorating Immigrant Heritage Month This June

This June, the Free Library is celebrating Philadelphia’s immigrant communities! June is Immigrant Heritage Month, a time when we celebrate the beauty and strength of our city’s many immigrant communities.

Our nation’s history is connected to the stories and experiences of immigrants who have made Philadelphia home.
