What to Expect in the Library in Fall 2021

With classes nearly fully in person for the first time since March 2020, and with the Main Library closed for a multi-year renovation project, what can you expect in the Library? Please check out this guide to how library services are changing for Fall 2021.

Census 2020 and American Community Survey Update:

The Census recently released its 2020 redistricting data - these are relatively simple population counts.  The data are in a format that requires special handling.  More granular data about people (like demographic components) and places (like county and town-level) are expected next Spring.  The COVID-19 pandemic seriously impacted ACS data collection.  The Census reports that they will not provide the standard 1-year estimates for 2020, but instead will release "experimental" 1-year estimates in November.
