Welcome to the Pollard Memorial Library Citizenship Corner!
The Pollard Memorial Library has established a U.S. Citizenship Resource Corner, thanks to funding from the Pollard Memorial Library Foundation.
The Citizenship Resource Corner is located in the Reference Room on the 2nd floor of the library. Here you will find U.S. citizenship test preparation materials, including books, flashcards, and DVDs. These materials are all available for check out. Informational literature on the citizenship process is also available.
Two additional 10-week Citizenship Preparation Courses are scheduled in 2017.
Summer Session: Wednesdays, June 7-August 9, from 6pm-8pm
