We all know that, “in this world, nothing can be certain but death and taxes,” right? Well, the same can be said for Census 2020. Whether you’re ready or not, it’s coming. Why not be prepared?
At the WLA conference, DPI presented a session called Say Yes to Census 2020. In case you couldn’t make it, the session will be repeated as a state-wide webinar.
Say Yes to Census 2020 Webinar
Tuesday, December 3, 1:30 PM
Description: Get the lowdown on all the ways you can say YES to Census 2020. Census 2020 counts will potentially create changes to political representation and Federal funding and inform your local data. Good numbers are important and libraries can--and should--help! Whether you're in a school, public or academic library, there's information here for you on this timely topic. Presented by Cindy Fesemyer and Monica Treptow, Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
