Census 2020


April 1, 2020 is Census Day for the next decennial census; the nation’s once-per-decade, constitutionally-mandated count of every American, regardless of their citizenship status.

The decennial census influences how hundreds of billions of dollars in public funds are allocated for critical public services like emergency response, schools, libraries, hospitals, roads and bridges, as well as our congressional representation in Washington. This all depends on an accurate and fully counted census response.

While we are all dealing with the current COVID-19 Crisis and many of us are at home please take this time to complete the 2020 Census.

How To Respond

The 2020 Census will ask a few simple questions about you and everyone who is or will be living with you on April 1, 2020.

For the first time, you can choose to complete the census online, by phone, or by mail. Find out more about each of these methods below:

Zoom Movement Class with Sondra Loring

Re-Imagine Your Story: Moving with Joy, Moving with Ease

 Mondays in June | 10:00 a.m.

June 1, 8, 15, 22


Come put a spring in your step with Sondra for this free four-week movement series through your favorite library’s offering of online classes! We’ll warm up using a chair (not always sitting in it), and have fun with simple movement practices to music from all different eras. This class is for all bodies, no dance experience needed. Join in to keep yourself moving and strong, with some laughter, and plenty of kindness. In addition, you will be invited to share in viewing and discussing a choreographic process, as Sondra works on an online community dance project.

Sondra Loring, choreographer, toured the world as a NYC dance artist, and now happily resides in the Hudson Valley. She directs Sadhana Center for Yoga, and the Sadhana Service Project in Hudson, bringing yoga to local prisons, jails and recovery centers.

This project is supported by the New York State Council on the Arts Decentralization Program through the Greene County Council on the Arts.
