We all count! This one-hour webinar illuminates how public libraries are bringing attention to the 2020 Census. Four quick presentations highlight the ways that libraries can reach out with programs, key messages, extended hours, and added services to help with census education.

Hear how adult literacy volunteer programs can bring together adults to learn about the whys and hows of the Census. For those serving children and families, one library system will tell how it developed census storytime and activity toolkits.

Finally, learn about toolkits that give you what you need to present census programming and answer questions.
