Loving Libraries Thursday

“The results of the 2020 Census will allocate billions of dollars in federal funding to local communities over the next decade, including more than $1 billion to libraries. As of late July 2020, only 62.7 percent of US households had completed the self-response form by mail, online or by phone. To help in those efforts, ALA is partnering with actress Auli’i Cravalho, star of the animated film Moana, to remind families of the importance of completing the 2020 Census. Cravalho will be featured in a read-along video of “WE COUNT! A Census Counting Book for Kids, (and the Grownups That Love Them)” (Simply Put Media 2020), an interactive counting book with illustrations of diverse American families by artists representing their own cultural heritage.

Please join us to read along with Auli’i on Thursday, August 27 at 11:00 a.m. CT on the American Library Association Facebook page and get the word out to your community”
