WANT TO HELP WITH THE CENSUS?
Connect with the GRAND ARMY PLAZA LIBRARY
to find out some easy ways you can help.

The Brooklyn Public Library and the NYC census offer a number of ways you can help 
get out the count for the Census.  Brooklyn now has less than 50% response rate, 
the lowest of the five boroughs. 
IMPORTANT: If you speak a language in addition to English, 
please email Amy Mikel at AMikel@bklynlibrary.org.
