In Libraries We Trust: The Role of Libraries in the 2020 Census
Many projections and estimates used in funding allocations and general planning are based on the census. Therefore, it is critical to have a complete count of all Utahns. With this poster, librarians will learn that the Census is mandated in the US Constitution; why a complete count is so important for libraries; timeline; hot topics; population trends; how the State Data Center can help libraries; and what libraries can do to help get a complete count in their communities.

In Libraries We Trust: The Role of Libraries in the 2020 Census
Many projections and estimates used in planning are based on the census. Similarly, many funding allocations are based on population counts, like the LSTA funds used in Utah. It is critical to have a complete count of all Utahns. Libraries can offer trustworthy information about the census and provide vital services to residents, especially to hard-to-count populations. Join us as we learn about dependable sources of information and how to be more effective census ambassadors to our communities.
