Newcomer services

The library is free to anyone living, working or studying in Mississauga. We offer several programs and services to help newcomers.

English conversation circles can help newcomers improve their language skills and boost their confidence in speaking English.

Commissioner of Oaths can authorize copies of official documents, administer oaths and declarations.

We also offer newspapers and magazines in 60 languages through our PressReader and public-use computers with Internet access and software like Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint.

Our newcomer newsletter is emailed to subscribers every two months. Go to subscribe to newcomers newsletter to receive the newsletter.

Settlement workers are also available at several library locations to help with settlement and immigration questions. You can also contact Immigration Peel to find a settlement service near you.

Help for young newcomers

Young people with permanent resident status can receive help with their homework, speaking English and learn leadership and social skills through our ‘support for newcomer youth’ program.

Library storytime programs in other languages are also available at various libraries throughout Mississauga. You can also listen to stories in English, French, Hindi, Mandarin, Polish and Urdu using our ‘Dial-A-Story’ service.

During the library closure, call 905-615-3500. After a brief message about the closure, you will be connected to Dial-A-Story.
