The State Library of Oregon is partnering with U.S. Census Bureau Partnership Specialists to offer libraries an opportunity to serve as Census Resource Centers. This program will provide libraries with Census promotional materials for a general audience when the 2020 Census survey is open. (Mid-March through July 2020).
Each library that participates in this program will receive :

  *   A toolkit with promotional resources (copies of Census forms, marketing/educational brochures and materials, social media messaging, posters and signs)
  *   Access to dedicated U.S. Census staff to help with staff and/or volunteer training, planning promotional activities, and answering questions about navigating Census forms

Each participating library is asked to display promotional resources about the Census during March-July 2020. Libraries are also encouraged to:

  *   Create dedicated spaces, including public computer workstations, where individuals may complete their Census survey
  *   Provide staff or volunteers to assist individuals that have questions about filling out their Census survey
  *   Organize a "Census Night at the Library" or other activities that promote Census participation in their community

To sign up, go to: https://forms.gle/PNBgjkaF4QW1mvB4A
Deadline: January 15, 2020.
