Funding for our local schools, Head Start programs, roads, Medicaid, community development grants, and more are all based on how many people are counted in the Census? Your response to the 2020 Census will affect not only the funding we receive for these important resources in our community, but also our representation in the federal and state governments.
By now, you should have received an invitation from the U.S. Census Bureau to complete the 2020 Census. At this time, responses can be answered online at my2020census.gov or by calling 844-330-2020. In a few weeks, the Census Bureau will mail out a paper questionnaire to households who have not responded. When the Library resumes operation and is open to the public, we will have a dedicated, secure computer for those who do not have access at home and wish to complete the census online.
The census will ask you 9 questions and should take about 10-15 minutes to complete. Please make sure you include everyone in your household, including children under 5!
