  • Be Counted! Census Questionnaire Assistance
    It's not too late to fill out the census, and the library can help. Local Census staff will be in the library's parking lot in July (dates here) to offer confidential assistance to complete your census online. Bring your own smart device and connect to the library's public WiFi signal or helpers will have their own devices. There will be no sharing of devices and social distancing measures will be in place to ensure everyone's health and safety. If you are sick, please stay home and save your visit for another day.
