Citizenship classes to help people from language backgrounds other than English pass the citizenship test will be held at La Porte County Public Library, 904 Indiana Ave., La Porte. They will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00pm-7:30pm. There will be one ten-week sessions from January 7th to March 17th (no class on January 14th due to the library being closed). There is no charge for the classes or materials.
Citizenship: Passing the Test workbooks from New Readers Press will be used in the classes. The first session will focus on Literacy Skills. The second session will be on Civics and Literacy. The third and fourth sessions will be on Ready for the Interview.
