As part of Hartford Public Library’s information hub for the community, The American Place connects newcomers with City services and resources to facilitate resettlement, education, and career transitions. We offer a robust Citizenship and English language program, including a unique after school English Academy for newcomer youth.
The American Place exists to provide immigrants with the knowledge necessary to attain a better life than that they left behind, to contribute to the nations growth and prosperity, and as vested citizens fully participate in the American democracy.
