Libraries across the country are helping spread the word about the U.S. Census. Responding to the census is an important tool to make sure our community properly plans for the future, receives accurate representation in government, and gets local services funded appropriately. The first thing you can do is to make sure you fill out your census form when you get it in the mail!
The second thing you can do is apply to be a Census worker at this site. There are many openings for workers. These positions offer competitive wages as well reimbursement for authorized travel expenses during your field work. Most of these positions feature flexible hours — you can help your country do the important work of counting its population around your own schedule.
