There will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Citizenship Corner at Fresno’s Central Library in downtown Fresno on Dec. 4.
The event is at 11 a.m. at 2420 Mariposa St.
The Citizenship Corner is a partnership between the library and the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, said Rocky Vang, community relations analyst with the library. It will provide information on obtaining United States citizenship and naturalization.
“The Citizenship Corner will be available at the following six branches: Central, Kerman, Mendota, Orange Cove, Parlier and Selma,” Vang said. “Dedicated space in each branch will provide information on general citizenship, application forms for naturalization, citizenship test preparation information, California AB60 driver’s license information and financial literacy for New Americans information.”
“With over 60,000 permanent residents in Fresno County who are eligible to become United States citizens, the Library believes this is a resource that will be well-utilized,” said County Librarian Laurel Prysiazny.
