2020 Census


Posted on August 3, 2020

Have you completed the 2020 Census yet? Four in ten households have not been counted as of last week and the time allowed to in-person census takers to complete their task has been decreased. The census plays a part in many financial aid and government funding formulas. That includes the Carroll and Madison Library System. How many people reside in Carroll County and Madison County is part of the formula that decides how much state aid we receive. A sharp decrease in the number of people counted will decrease the amount of aid we receive and in turn the amount your libraries have to purchase materials and provide services. It isn’t too late though! Click this link and fill out the 2020 Census today. It only takes a few minutes. https://2020census.gov/
