Time: 10:00am – 12:00pm
Location: Southeastern
Presenter: Mario Garcia, Partnership Specialist, US Census Bureau

What is the role of academic libraries in the 2020 Census?

What can the library do to help ensure a complete count in New York?

What can I do as a librarian to help our community?

What does it mean that the census is mostly online this year?

Why is a complete count important for our library’s future?

If you would like to know the answers to these questions or any others, please join us for this discussion on the upcoming census. A complete count is vital for getting federal dollars to New York, ensuring that everyone is represented in government, and to a healthy representational democracy. Our partnership specialist for the Hudson Valley, Mario Garcia, will be joining us to present on facts and important information that you can share with your colleagues, staff, students, and community members. As more news and potential disinformation spreads, now is a good time to be aware of how this process will work.

The intended audience for this workshop are people who work in academic libraries. Hospital, special, public and school librarians are also welcome to attend and ask questions. There is no cost to register for this meeting.
