Deadline Extended to Jan. 25 for Free Citizenship Courses at the North Bergen Library

The North Bergen Free Public Library has extended the deadline for its free 15-week citizenship courses at the main library and the Guttenberg Resource Center. Beginner and high intermediate/advanced level classes are available.

The new deadline to register is Friday, Jan. 25, 2019. Classes begin Saturday, Jan. 26, 2019.

The courses are funded through the Citizenship and Assimilation Grant Program, which was awarded to the library by the Department of Homeland Security. The grant aims to help organizations promote prospective citizens’ assimilation into American civic life by funding educational programs designed to increase their knowledge of English, U.S. history, and civics.

Bring your green card when you register. A $50 refundable attendance deposit is required (check or money order).

The main library is located at 8411 Bergenline Ave. The Guttenberg Resource Center is downstairs in the Galaxy Towers Mall at 7002 Boulevard East. For more information call 201-869-4715 or visit
