New American Library Association (ALA) Resource #CountOnLibraries

Today, the American Library Association (ALA) released a new publication, “Libraries and the 2020 Census: Adapting Outreach in Response to COVID-19” and announced a free webinar for library staff, “2020 Census: Last Chance for a Complete Count,” to be held on July 8, 2020, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Libraries are essential partners in achieving a complete count in the 2020 Census. In response to COVID-19, the Census Bureau and libraries delayed and adjusted 2020 Census operations and awareness activities. The four-page tip sheet and upcoming webinar will explain those changes and highlight opportunities for libraries to adapt census outreach activities. See the four-page tip sheet below:
