How Libraries Are Updating their Complete Count Efforts During a Pandemic

May 18, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Libraries have been hard at work for months preparing for the U.S. Census. We learned how to keep patron data safe when completing the census at our libraries, became intimately familiar with the ways in which census data affects funding throughout the states, and trained staff on how to best accomplish a complete count.

Just when we thought we’d cleared so many hurdles, library facilities closed in an effort to stop the propagation of a life-threatening virus. Panelists Jeff Behler (U.S. Census Bureau), Jay Brandon (New York Public Library), Dana Hysell-Alongi (Westchester Library System), Amy Mikel (Brooklyn Public Library), and Nayelli Valencia Turrent (Queens Public Library) will share their updated approaches for working toward a complete count when everyone is staying safe from Covid-19 at home.
