Danbury Library Offers Free Citizenship Classes

By Angela Barbosa

Becoming a permanent resident of the United States grants an immigrant authorization to lawfully live and work in the United States on a permanent basis. The next best step, once you are eligible, is to become a United States citizen and be rewarded with all the rights and privileges that are part of U.S. citizenship.

For green card holders that are ready to take that next step, the Danbury Public Library, in partnership with The New American Dream Foundation, Inc. (TNADF), and the Western Connecticut Regional Adult & Continuing Education (WERACE), is offering free citizenship classes.

Registration is on Saturday, January 25, 2020 from 10:00am -1:00pm at the Danbury Library, located at 170 Main Street.

The 14-session citizenship program will be held on Saturdays, from February 1 thru May 16, from 10:30am -1:30pm in the library’s Lower Level Meeting Room. Dates may change at the library’s discretion, so please confirm when you go in or call to register. Note that children are not permitted at registration or during classes.

Applicants must bring proof of identification and address. A green card, or a valid State of Connecticut or federal photo ID that includes address is preferred.

For more information, please contact Cecilia Veiga, WERACE Adult ESL Program Coordinator, at (203) 501-4216 or email adultedinfo@danbury.k12.ct.us.
