Exciting development for the NAC: The United States Citizenship and Immigrant Services (USCIS) Office of Citizenship signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Institute of Museum & Library Services (IMLS) to spread the “citizenship corner” concept to the 9000 libraries across the country! This is modeled on what the New Americans Campaign piloted successfully in Los Angeles. Seeing the partnership with public libraries become a national model is a tremendous accomplishment for the NAC. USCIS specifically said that having the NAC’s naturalization service providers partnered with the libraries has been key to success. USCIS is very interested in targeting libraries in other NAC sites and we will work together to accomplish this.
