Be Counted! Complete Your Census Return at the LibraryWe are providing an open space for you to ask questions and get help submitting your US Federal Census return. Each session will include computers and internet access, as well as one-on-one help from representatives from the Bolingbrook Census Counts Committee. Copies of the census questions will be available for you to review at any time during our coffee and census sessions, and if you need assistance in another language such as Spanish or Polish, volunteers will be available to assist you and answer any questions. For your privacy, the computers and software are designed to delete any information or data recorded. For the comfort of each patron attending these sessions, light refreshments will be available.

Census Information

Why is the census so important?

  • Each person counted in the census generates over $1,400 for our community
  • Census data funds high-need programs such as free/reduced school lunches, free summer meals for children and free medical services in our community
  • Affordable housing, improvements to roads and highways, and emergency services such as fire departments depend on census information

The 2020 census will NOT ask you about:

  • Your citizenship
  • Your banking information
  • Your social security number

Our community is counting on you to be counted in the 2020 census. By not participating, our community will lose much needed funding to provide essential services to the people and programs who need them the most.
