Unfortunately, public library closures are overlapping with the original Census response period, meaning people who would have participated via a library computer don’t currently have that access. Remember, another safe, easy, and quick way to respond is via telephone, toll free. The number for English speakers is 844-330-2020, and there are additional phone numbers for more than a dozen other languages. Census answers will be taken by real people who have taken oaths of confidentiality, not by a computer or voice mail system. Find more detail and additional phone numbers at: https://2020census.gov/en/ways-to-respond/responding-by-phone.html

Tonight’s (March 18) Library Board Meeting has been postponed. A virtual meeting will be held at a later date.
Online Library Card Application
Just print out an application. Fill it out and bring it to the library with proper ID’s (ID info is on each application.) and at no cost become a member of the BPL.
