Library helps 10 residents become U.S. citizens

The Ramona Branch of San Diego County Library will host a Citizenship Graduation for 10 Ramonans who recently became citizens of the United States through classes offered in the library.

The graduation will be held on Sunday, April 7, at 1 p.m. in the Ramona Library at 1275 Main St.

Citizenship classes are offered in Ramona Library on Mondays and Thursdays at 6 p.m.

“The class gave me an outside life, a chance to meet people in Ramona, and an opportunity to gain confidence,” said Guadalupe Sauceda-Knight, one of the library’s recent citizenship graduates.

Citizenship classes include help filling out the N-400 application, practicing the 100 civics questions, and everything attendees need to know to pass their citizenship interview.

In addition, the classes assist with English reading, writing, and conversation skills. San Diego County Library branches held citizenship classes at eight branches last year, with 2,056 attendees.
