For awhile now, I’ve wanted to be a US citizen in order to have more of a voice/impact on issues that mattered to me.
I didn’t know what to expect. I was a bit nervous but I had no need to be. After introductions were made, the volunteer instructor gave a brief overview of the six-week course. We were given a packet containing the necessary forms and flash cards and other study materials.
While I decided to just attend one class since it seemed self-explanatory to me and to give the other students more time if they needed additional assistance, I was so grateful that the library offered his kind of service! It was just what I needed to get the process started.

I decided to share my story now because I recently took my Oath Ceremony. I am now a US Citizen! Thanks to Multnomah County Library for helping me achieve this goal!
