Free citizenship classes begin Jan. 7 at library

Citizenship classes to help people from language backgrounds other than English pass the citizenship test will be held at La Porte County Public Library, 904 Indiana Ave., La Porte. The next 10-week session will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. from Jan. 7 to March 17 (no class on Jan. 14). There is no charge for the classes or materials.

“Citizenship: Passing the Test” workbooks from New Readers Press will be used in the classes. The first session will focus on Literacy Skills. The second session will be on Civics and Literacy. The third and fourth sessions will be on Ready for the Interview.

The classes are sponsored by READ La Porte County Inc. They will be taught by Cathy Eldridge, a former French and English as a Second Language teacher. They are funded by a generous grant from the Unity Foundation of La Porte County.

READ La Porte County Inc. is also supported by United Way and Bethany Lutheran Church of La Porte Foundation.
