Hi everyone,

Please see below for a message from Gavin Baker, Assistant Director of
Government Relations:

Today, the American Library Association released
the *Libraries’ Guide to the 2020 Census
<http://bit.ly/LibrariesGuideCensus>*, a new resource to prepare libraries
for the decennial count of every person living in the United States.

The *Guide* contains practical information to assist library staff in
addressing potential patron and community requests regarding the upcoming
2020 Census. The *Guide* includes:

   - basic information about the Census process;
   - highlights of new components in the 2020 Census, such as the online
   response option;
   - frequently asked questions;
   - a timeline of key Census dates;
   - contact information and links to additional resources.

ALA teamed with the Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality to develop
the *Guide*, with support from ALA’s 2020 Census Library Outreach and
Education Task Force. ALA plans to provide additional resources for library
practitioners in the months leading up to Census Day on April 1, 2020.

The *Libraries’ Guide to the 2020 Census
<http://bit.ly/LibrariesGuideCensus>* is available for free download at
ala.org/census <http://www.ala.org/census>.
