2020 Census Information
On April 1, 2020, the United States will undergo its Constitutionally required decennial count of all persons residing within the nation. Later this month, residents will receive documents to complete for the Census which should be completed and returned by the end of April. Participation in the Census is crucial because it determines state and federal congressional political boundaries and allocated funding. During the month of April, the Algonquin Area Public Library District will be hosting events to help residents complete their Census forms online.
