The Littleton Immigrant Resources Center (LIRC) at Bemis Library is an award-winning program that helps immigrants connect to community services, learn English, study for the citizenship test, and apply for immigration benefits such as U.S. citizenship. The program has been recognized by the Harvard’s “Bright Idea” program as well as the National League of Cities for helping immigrants participate in their communities.
The citizenship program helps immigrants interested in obtaining U.S. citizenship with all aspects of the citizenship process. This program is comprised of the following components:
- Eligibility Screening and Naturalization Application Assistance: Our organization has Department of Justice (D.O.J.) accredited staff members who are certified to practice immigration law before the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). These staff members help immigrants determine whether they are eligible for citizenship and help immigrants to fill out the naturalization application (Form N-400) and prepare for the interview. Staff members also represent immigrants at their Naturalization interviews with USCIS.
See our Fee Schedule to make sure you qualify for these services.
- Citizenship Instruction: LIRC educates immigrants on the rights and responsibilities of citizenship, assisting them to successfully integrate into American society. We
- offer both small group classes and a one-on-one citizenship mentoring program. Classes cover the US History and Civics information needed to pass the interview and exam.
Citizenship Public Education and Awareness Campaign: To learn more about the citizenship process, check out the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website.
