Don’t Forget About the 2020 Census! The 2020 Census has been extended to September 30th due to Covid-19. There are a number of ways to take the 10 question Census. You can take it online at https://2020census.gov/, call (844)-330-2020 or make a computer appointment to complete it at the library. The Census is even sending out emails if you haven’t responded yet. It is so important to the community to fill this out because the numbers determine our representation in government and federal funding, shape businesses’ decisions about where to invest in, and give residents and local government important information they can use to help advocate for our area. Be counted and take the 2020 Census today!
