The American Place

The American Place (TAP) is a division of Hartford Public Library (HPL). Fully aligned with our Library’s mission, TAP provides industry recognized certificate training, and guidance for adults to pursue educational advancement and compete in today’s workplace. Established in 2000, Services include a nationally recognized U.S. Citizenship program supporting immigrants in achieving citizenship and becoming vested citizens. Our Library’s learning environment reflects Hartford’s shared civic values, rich history, and vibrant multiculturalism. We welcome all – whether U.S. born or newcomer immigrant.

We continue to safely offer services

All in-person classes have transitioned online. Previously enrolled students continue to receive instruction from their teachers via Zoom, WhatsApp, and other familiar tools. Students are also engaged in online learning as they prepare for their GED test, improve their English language skills, or prepare for an industry recognized certificate, such as Servsafe Food Manager. TAP’s legal staff members are also working remotely and are available to help you complete your Citizenship application and prepare for your Citizenship interview and civics in real time electronically. Please see below for instructions on how to access our services or Tel./Text: 860-490-8402 Email:
