Why Is the Census Important to Illinois and Your Community
We learned on this week's webinar that libraries across the state of Illinois have been asked to participate in census work. The Illinois Library Association (ILA) has formally asked all Illinois libraries to assist with Census as much as possible. Libraries are a trusted partner in our communities and they can have a big impact and play an important role for having members of the community complete the census. This data collected from the census gives the local library data about the demographics that they serve, and they can to better know their communities.
