We are temporarily out of the special glasses required for viewing the eclipse. We hope to have more in a day or two!
We will update this banner as soon as we receive our shipment. While you wait, check out these other options: solar eclipse
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services has generously donated a collection of resources for circulation to PPL. Furthermore, there is now a shelf on the Lower Level of the Main Library full of items donated from USCIS that folks can take (for free!) to help prepare for the process.
Sally Bauvelt, Field Office Director, and Cindy Lembarra, Supervisory Immigration Services Officer, want to be sure that people know that at the USCIS office in South Portland they are available and willing to help. In fact, they even plan on setting up workshops in the near future here at PPL to talk to New Mainers about any immigration questions they have and to help answer any questions around the citizenship process.
If you speak with anyone who may find these materials helpful, please send them our way!
A sample of the available items (with links to the library catalog):
Civics and citizenship multimedia presentation [videorecording] : a promise of freedom : an introduction to U.S. history and civics for immigrants : becoming a U.S. citizen : an overview of the naturalization process from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
Resources are also available on the USCIS website at the Citizenship Resource Center.
We at PPL, are very thankful to the USCIS for the support of the library and for their support of the New Mainers community.
