Beginning on Monday, March 16, individuals can have their questions answered and receive assistance in filling out 2020 Census forms at most Indianapolis Public Library locations. These free help sessions staffed by representatives from Count Me INdy and the U.S. Census Bureau will show people how to fill out census forms online.

This year’s census count will be used to distribute more than $675 billion annually to all levels of government and communities across the nation.

“We hope the Count Me INdy days at libraries throughout Marion County will provide a low-stress, equitable opportunity for residents of historically undercounted communities to come in and fill out their census forms,” said Miriam Acevedo Davis, co-chair of Count Me INdy’s Complete Count Committee. “Not all have access to the Internet, so these opportunities enable them to self-respond and avoid a census worker knocking on their door.”

The IndyPL census help sessions, which are part of Count Me INdy Days taking place across the county, will be held at the following times and locations.

“Count Me INdy is dedicated to promoting the census to all residents and ensuring they know that - whoever they are and wherever they are from - they count in the 2020 Census,” said Tony Mason, co-chair of Count Me INdy’s Complete Count Campaign. “We believe this partnership with the Indianapolis Marion County Public Library will help us interact with traditionally undercounted populations, and overcome barriers to filling out the census.”

In addition to the free sessions, the Indy Library will provide free access to computers and the Internet throughout March and April for those who wish to visit on their own to complete the online census form.
