Library hosting US citizenship information workshop
The Paso Robles City Library will host a Spanish language US citizenship information session on Friday, Sept. 23 from 6-8 p.m. in the library conference room located at 1000 Spring Street.
This public workshop is part of the continued efforts of U.S. Citizenship and Information Services (USCIS) to help immigrants better understand the naturalization process, including the content of the naturalization test. The session will also serve to provide access to free educational resources and materials available from the agency.
USCIS personnel will be on-hand to discuss the naturalization process step-by-step and provide information about eligibility and residency requirements, application forms, fees, the background security check and processing times. Participants will also see sample questions from the naturalization test and receive an overview of U.S. history and civic principles. Free educational materials will be available while supplies last.
“The Paso Robles City Library is thrilled to partner with the USCIS to bring this valuable information to our community,” commented Angelica Fortin, City Librarian. “By providing this vital service, we hope to connect our immigrant community to the many resources that will help them successfully navigate through this important process.”
The program, presented by USCIS, is being offered in partnership with First 5 San Luis Obispo, the Paso Robles Hispanic Business Association (HBA) and the local chapter of the League of United Latin American Citizens(LULAC).
