The American Place (TAP) is a free library program designed to welcome immigrants and facilitate their transition into their new home city. Our services include free English and Citizenship classes, resources for studying at home, and assistance with accessing online immigration information. Also, TAP recruits and trains volunteer Cultural Navigators to offer mentoring and tutoring support to new arrivals.
