Free U.S. Citizenship Classes Offered

The Enid Public Library offers free U.S. Citizenship classes each Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. in the Great Plains Room. Each class lasts about an hour.

These classes assist students in preparation for the Naturalization Test and interview. The course introduces students to historical and cultural information used on the Naturalization Test and explores the steps of the naturalization process. Classes are designed for adults who have already obtained a green card and are studying for the exam. Classes are held in English, but the library has referrals to free English as a Second Language classes from other local providers if participants are in need of a little extra English help.

“We have been offering these classes for a few years, and have had many that have attended these classes go on to pass the exam to become U.S. citizens. This year alone, seven of our class members have passed the test and we are always excited for them. It can be challenging, but with some studying, our class members can do it,” Margo Holmes, Adult Program and Development Teacher at the Enid Public Library said.

Both the class and workbook they use for instruction are free for participants. Each workbook is 14 chapters, and while they recently started the book, participants can join at any time.
