Citizenship Classes | Clases de Ciudadanía
Co-sponsored by Boulder County Community Action Programs and the Boulder Public Library, these classes provide help with citizenship questions and practicing the citizenship interview, and offer information about the citizenship process.
Conversations in English
These small groups have received national recognition for efforts to help people new to the U.S. learn English. These informal, friendly groups are led by volunteer native speakers of American English. Each group meets once a week.
Conversations in English Book Club - for New Readers In English
Started in September 1997, this club is intended for people who like to read and who read English as a second language. Currently, members are from the library’s various Conversations in English classes, though anyone is welcome. The club is set up to focus on a specific genre or topic during four-week sessions.
