Why and How Librarians can Help with Census 2020 (North Dakota State Library)

This webinar will have a North Dakota focus but may be useful to others as well. Libraries represent 'trusted organizations' in the community with the resources and the opportunity to education members of the public on the importance of the decennial census in the local community.  Librarians also have the opportunity to explain the ease of the census, just 10 questions per person, and the rules for privacy and confidentiality for personal information the Census Bureau is required to maintain. Often located in census tracts with higher proportions of traditionally under counted populations, most libraries have computers and WiFi accessible to the public. These assets are important in completing the 2020 Census as it will be the first in which responses can be provided online. Librarians, working with local complete count committees, can help ensure their local community is accurately counted and obtains its fair share of financial resources for the next decade.
