2020 Census: Last Chance for a Complete Count
Wednesday, July 8, 2020 | 1-2 p.m. Central
A complete count in the 2020 Census is essential to make sure that libraries and their communities don’t miss out on billions of dollars in needed funding, as well as political representation. However, nearly 40% of households have not responded yet, and the count is even lower among populations that have been undercounted historically. Participants in this webinar will learn how the Census Bureau, libraries, and community partners have adapted their operations and outreach in response to COVID-19, and how libraries can support a complete count before the Census ends in October. REGISTER NOW!
This webinar is co-sponsored by the ALA Public Policy and Advocacy Office and the Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services.
Join ALA on Thursday, June 4, 1:00 - 2:15 pm CT for “The Library Community Moving Forward in the New Normal." This free webinar will offer insight and discussion with leaders from state, public, academic, and school libraries on the continued efforts and strategies to reopen library facilities across the country.
Attendees will benefit from hearing about preliminary results from the recent national “Libraries Respond: COVID-19 Survey,” and have the opportunity to ask questions and compare and contrast planning and guidance across the range of library types to inform your own robust planning and services
