It's chilly and the leaves are changing colors, but at OPL, we're already thinking ahead to spring -- and the 2020 census.
Beginning in March 2020, the US Census Bureau will begin its decennial (that's every ten years) count of people living in the US. Getting an accurate count for the census is critical to government funding, and the Oakland Public Library will be helping to make sure everyone gets counted, especially vulnerable populations such as immigrants and refugees, families with children, and people experiencing homelessness.
Want to be part of that effort while earning some money? The Census Bureau will hire thousands of workers to help count people next year, and they will give one-on-one help to anyone who wants to apply for those jobs in these upcoming workshops. Bring your resume!
