Help With Census Forms

FormHopefully, all of you got a form from the US Census Bureau to fill out so that the federal government will know how to distribute its money and political power. The Census Bureau is sending someone to the Fairbanks Library almost every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday afternoon until April 19 to help people fill out their forms. You can call the library at (713) 466-4438 to find out the exact days and times that the Census Bureau representative will be here. Or you can call the Census Bureau. The phone number for English speakers is 1-866-872-6868. For people that speak other languages, the Census Bureau web site has additional toll-free numbers.

There is a very good chance that they will have the information you need. Just put the year, make, and model into the “Vehicle Selector,” select “Repair” or “Maintenance,” and choose what you would like to work on from the lists.

Flowers

It’s that time of year when we can use yard work as an excuse to stay outside and enjoy the nice weather.
