Dozens of new United States citizens were naturalized at the Seattle Central Public Library.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Seattle District Director Anne Arries Corsano read the oath for the 62 naturalization candidates, who come from 23 countries.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan gave a keynote speech.

The library was selected as the naturalization location, because it was National Library Week, and the library offers many education and language resources for immigrants, according to USCIS.

The ceremony will took place at the Central Library, 1000 Fourth Avenue, in Seattle on Friday, April 13, 2018.
