New Americans Initiative


Welcome New Americans! As the second largest city in the United States, Los Angeles is home to immigrants from more than 140 countries.

We are working together with our community partners to bring important information to you about immigration and citizenship. Our New Americans Centers and New Americans Welcome Stations have in-person assistance, study materials and provide access to a variety of helpful services and resources.

We value your privacy and your rights as a resident in Los Angeles. All information is confidential and services in the library are all free. Questions? Call us at 213-228-7390.
