Is your library looking for ways to support immigrants and refugees in your community? Would you like to help people learn about United States citizenship? Are you interested in free, high-quality, and easy-to-use educational resources? The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services’ (USCIS) Office of Citizenship has developed a wealth of products and resources your library can use to help people gain information on how to become a U.S. citizen, prepare for the U.S. naturalization test and interview, as well as navigate life in the United States.
