Can we count on you to take the Census and make our communities count? Getting counted in the Census ensures our communities get the resources they deserve! Census 2020 will be more accessible than ever. For the first time, you’ll be able to take the Census online. Starting in March, everyone will be asked to complete the census online, by phone, or by mail.
To support our communities, we are providing Civics Centers at all AC Libraries. Our Civics Centers are welcoming and accessible places for you to complete the census online or by phone. Civics Centers will be open during each library’s open hours.
