The library has a new guide called Census 2020, compiling resources in both English and Spanish, answering your questions and stressing the importance of your participation in the U.S. Census.
Did you know that the Census:
*Is mandated by the Constitution?
*Helps determine representation in the House of Representatives?
* Can change how the boundaries to districts are drawn in your area?
See Census 101 for more.
The guide has direct links to the U.S. Census site, as well as resources such as books, databases, and websites.
You will want to be sure to participate! Your information is confidential, but can be important as to monies received from the government toward important services and programs in your community.
