Somerville Public Library and St. Mark Community Education Program to host Citizenship Interview Preparation Class

The Somerville Public Library and St. Mark Community Education Program will host a free, 12-part Citizenship Interview Preparation Class on Saturdays this fall in partnership with Project Citizenship. The class is designed to prepare participants for all parts of their citizenship test, from literacy to U.S. history and government while improving English speaking and listening skills.  

Prospective students must have a basic level understanding of English and must hold a legal permanent resident card for five years, or three years if married to an American citizen.

The class will run from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for 12 Saturdays from September 7 to November 23 at the Central Library, 79 Highland Avenue. Students can register for the series on the first day of class.

For more information, please contact Brigid Pigott at 617-623-5000 ext. 2935 or [email protected].
The program is in partnership with Project Citizenship, a non-profit that provides applicants free technical and legal help in completing their applications for citizenship.
