The 2020 Census

Census Day is April 1st. 

What's different this year? In 2020, the United States Census will be conducted primarily online for the first time. (Households will still have the option to respond by phone or mail.) Invitations will be sent in the mail beginning in mid-March, offering the online response option. To avoid a home visit, response is recommended before the end of April 2020. 

Why does the Census matter? Census data helps to determine representation in Congress, state and local governments. It is also widely used by researchers, business and other organizations. 

I want to be hired to help with the Census. Head to 2020census.gov/jobs to apply. 

What about confidentiality? Any responses to the Census are safe, secure and protected by federal law. 

What is the library's role with the Census? Please feel free to take advantage of the library's computer lab, laptops and free Wi-Fi to complete the 2020 Census. We will have dedicated stations available for you to use to take the Census. The form should take about 10 minutes to complete. 

Library staff are available to assist with questions, and the below resources may also prove helpful:
