A Note from Roberta & Shelley
Tuesday, December 3, is GivingTuesday, the international day of giving. We hope you will choose Prince George's County Libraries as one of the charities you will support that day. As you know, libraries are essential to our communities and our neighborhoods. They are safe, joyful places where all are welcome. Our librarians are here to help solve problems and convene people around challenges and opportunities
The new PGCMLS Foundation is fundraising on GivingTuesday and beyond. Funding will help support innovative new services and exciting new materials for all of our locations. Please join us in donating!
In 2020, the PGCMLS Foundation will be hosting events countywide. We hope you will join us! To add your name to the invitation list, please send your contact information to email@example.com.
Thank you for your generosity and
Roberta R. Phillips, CEO and

Library as Go-To Venue for 2020 Census
Your library is a key partner in the 2020 Census count. Computers are a new important option available this year for recording census data. After receiving your online or paper invitation beginning March 12-20, 2020 to participate in the Census, you may visit your neighborhood library for computer access and assistance with filling out your census information. The Library will have dedicated computers and trained staff. All personal information is confidential, including citizenship, income and other sensitive data by law. You may respond in 12 different languages.
The census count is very important and determines the federal financial contributions received by the states and their localities. If our community is undercounted, friends and neighbors miss out on an estimated $18,250 per person over a 10-year period. Statewide, that’s a total of $26.6 billion.
