Tompkins County Public Library Makes Census Stations Available

Tuesday, August 4, 2020

Community members needing to complete their 2020 U.S. Census will have access to computers at the Tompkins County Public Library starting August 11th. The computer stations dedicated to filling out the census will be available from 10am to 1pm and 3pm to 6pm on Tuesdays and Thursday and from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm on Saturdays. Community members do not need a library card to complete their census form, and library staff will be available to direct individuals to the computer stations.

The library’s reopening plan requires separate entrances and exits for staff and patrons. Community members will be asked to enter the building on the south side, through the door just beyond the Ezra Cornell mural on Cayuga St. Please note that masks and six feet of social distancing are required to enter the building and must remain in place for the entire visit. Census takers will disinfect the computer equipment used before and after each use. Sanitizing wipes are at each station. 

Individuals will be able to exit the building after completing the Census through the lobby facing Green Street.

Library Director Annette Birdsall stated, “It’s our goal to make filling out the census as accessible as possible. We’re encouraging everyone, no matter their resources or background to participate, and the library is happy to be able to provide computer access in a safe environment.”
