Did you hear? This is Johnson County Library's official podcast where we let you know what's happening and what we recommend!

    Census

    Census

    Did you hear about the United States Census 2020? It's kind of a big deal! In fact, it's a requirement of our Constitution that every individual in the country be counted. Even if you are not a citizen, you are legally obligated to answer all Census questions. 
    We dive into the what, why, and how. We discuss the importance of the Census and the Library's role as a trusted partner in helping you to participate. History, geology, geography, it's all here. We even help you spot fraud: 
    No one should be asking for your social security number
    Census forms do not ask for bank information
    You will not be emailed or texted by the Census
    No one will ever call you 
    So, did you hear about the Census?

    Notable Books of 2019

    At first glance we thought someone had something against furniture "No table books"??? What do you have against tables?! But then, we realized we needed to pay a little more attention to what we're reading. "Notable" not "No Table." (We apologize for that HORRIBLE joke!!!)
    Our readers advisory librarian Gregg Winsor makes another Did You Hear? appearance to discuss Notable Books! Gregg, Dave and Melissa reveal this list of great books from 2019. Gregg whittled this list of 50 titles down from numerous Library staff nominated titles. Get ready to add to your “to read” list!
