The 2020 Census will be conducted primarily online and library staff will be on the front lines to assist!
Assisting people with their Census forms is just one way libraries can contribute to this important effort. Accurate Census data is a key component to fair representation and funding and is vital to all types of library users, including students, researchers, businesses and community organizations.
According to ALA, 99% of Hard-to-Count (HTC) census tracts live within five miles of a public library!
