2020 Census and Public Libraries

Public libraries across the United States are destined to play a vital role in the 2020 Census. Conducted every 10 years, results from the census help to identify congressional seats, federal funding apportionments, and something especially important to libraries—LSTA Grants to States. With that in mind, Alabama Public Library Service (APLS) wants to help our libraries prepare for the big count.
