Background

USCIS understands that libraries play a critical role in serving immigrant communities. In fact, more than 55% of new Americans use the public library at least once a week. There, they find a trusted environment, resources, and community connections. For many people new to the United States, libraries serve as a gateway to citizenship. Since 2013, IMLS has worked with USCIS to help libraries provide accurate and useful information about immigration and citizenship benefits, promote an awareness and understanding of citizenship, and ensure the integrity of the immigration system.
