Your country needs your help

Many of you have already received your questionaire in the mail. It does not take very long to complete. Should you have trouble filling out your census questionaire, U.S Census staff is available at the George W. Hawkes Central Library every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (March 19-April 24) between 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm to provide assistance.

Census information is important, and can help determine how many seats your state gets to occupy in the U.S. House of Representatives. This information is also used to help determine how tax dollars should be spent. If you choose not to mail your census information, a staff member will come to your house to collect the information in person.

If you are not able to make it to the library for help, telephone questionaire assistance lines are available:

English: 1-866-872-6868
Chinese: 1-866-935-2010
Korean: 1-866-955-2010
Russian: 1-866-965-2010
Spanish: 1-866-928-2010
Vietnames: 1-866-945-2010
TDD: 1-866-783-2010
