Be Counted: Census 2020

Have you filled out your 2020 Census form yet? I know it's hard to focus on the Census when so much of our attention is taken up with news of the Covid-19 pandemic and coping with the Stay-at-Home order. But I went online and got it done in just a few minutes last week, because I know it's important.

Why is it important? According to the Census website, things like school lunches, plans for highways, support for firefighters and families in need, and much more, depend on an accurate Census count.

It helps if you have the letter from the Census that most likely arrived at your house in March. That contains a code that identifies you. But you can fill out the Census with or without that code.  Just go to the Census website and click on the green Respond button.

You'll also find a link on the Library website. -SB
