Free U.S. Citizenship Prep Classes
For Adults At Lakewood Branch
of the Ocean County Library

TOMS RIVER, NJ – Ocean County Library’s Lakewood branch, 301 Lexington Avenue, will host a free, seven-session class to prepare people who want to take the test for US citizenship.

The class is appropriate for adults 18 years and older who have lawful and continuous permanent residency in the United States for a minimum of five years.  Those attending should have been physically present in the United States for thirty months, with at least three months living in the same state or district.

The class will instruct the students on all topics covered by the test for US citizenship, including civics and American history, and offer practice exercises on English reading and written vocabulary.

The test itself will not be administered as part of the class.  The test for US citizenship is only administered by US Citizenship and Immigration Services.

The class will be held on Wednesdays: March 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, and April 6 and 13, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. at the branch.

Registration is required because of the limited class size.
