The 2020 US Census has begun. The results will allocate billions of dollars in federal funding to local communities over the next decade, including more than $1 billion to libraries. Our count brings Alaska more than $3.2 billion each year for essential services including public safety, housing, roads and schools.
In mid-March, households will begin receiving official Census Bureau mail with detailed information on how to respond to the 2020 Census. It is safe and confidential and can be completed online, in-person or over the phone. If you need a computer or internet access to be counted, visit one of our five Anchorage Public Library Locations. Learn more about how Alaska is working to ensure every resident is counted. You Count. Be Counted.
