2020 Census -SHAPE YOUR FUTURE

It starts with each of us doing our part. And how we do this is by completing the 2020 Census questionnaire. You can complete it online or by phone. It is easy, safe and takes around 10 minutes to complete.

Completing the questionnaire allows you to influence the amount of money that comes to Vermont for many of our essential programs…programs that benefit our health and safety, that pay for our roads, for local government, for schools, for hospitals, and for so much more…

All households should receive an invitation by this weekend with a 12 digit Census ID to go online and complete the questionnaire. But, you can complete the questionnaire at any time without the census ID by going to the official Census website, my2020Census.gov. When you get there you will see a link :”If you don’t have a Census ID, click here”. It will ask you for your physical address and from there you can complete the questionnaire.

If you prefer not to use the internet, this is the first time we can complete the questionnaire by phone! You can call: 844-330-2020 to get help in English. There are an additional 13 other language options for completing the questionnaire as well.

If you have questions, or need help, please call the 2020 Census office in Burlington at 802-557-6707 (we are teleworking to be safe and well and will respond to your calls), or you can email me at David.a.longsmith@2020census.gov and I’ll get back to you with an answer.

Moore Free Library Closure Notice

Effective March 16, 2020, the Moore Free Library and Crowell Art Gallery are closed and all events are cancelled until further notice, due to the coronavirus.

Online access to ebooks and audiobooks is available through GMLC/Overdrive and RB Digital and they can be accessed through the library’s web site. Both of these services allow users to either stream or download audiobooks and ebooks and are free to library patrons.

Newfane or Brookline residents who would like to set up a free library account for the first time can also do so by phone or email.

The library has free, powerful wifi available which reaches outside. Patrons can park in front of the library or sit on the porch or bring their own chair to the front lawn (maintaining social distancing, of course) and use the wifi.
