Municipal Library Notes – August 25, 2020
Spotlight on 2020 Census


The 2020 Census is ending on September 30 and it is critical that all New Yorkers are counted. New York City will lose billions of dollars in federal funds every single year for schools, hospitals, health clinics, affordable housing, transportation, and more, as well as our representation in Congress and in Albany if we do not achieve a complete count.

The census is easy, safe, and confidential. It can be completed online or by phone; it is just 10 simple questions that can be answered in under 10 minutes. By law, all responses are completely confidential and cannot be shared with anyone — not immigration, not the police, or your landlord. There are no questions about immigration, citizenship, criminal history, or income. Go to or call 844-330-2020 to complete your census today. New York City’s future depends on it.
