The Somerville Public Library and St. Mark Community Education Program announced this week that they will partner for spring 2020 to offer a free, twelve-part Citizenship Interview Preparation Class for residents seeking to apply for American citizenship. Classes will be offered on Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., from March 7 through May 23, at the Central Library (79 Highland Ave.). The class is designed to prepare students for all parts of their citizenship test. It will cover the literacy test, 100 questions about U.S. history and government, and provide help to improve speaking and listening abilities in English.
Prospective students must have a basic understanding of English and hold a legal permanent resident card for five years, or three years if married to an American citizen.
Students can register for the series in person on March 7 during the first class. For more information, please contact Brigid Pigott at 617.623.5000 ex 2935 or
For application assistance, students will be referred to Project Citizenship, a non-profit that provides free technical and legal help in completing applications for citizenship.
