Subject: [Michlib-l] Determining Residency and Millages for Public Library Cards

Hello everyone,
In the past, my library has used American Factfinder<https://factfinder.census.gov/faces/nav/jsf/pages/index.xhtml> to help determine where millages are paid and how classifications for residency are determined for our library cards. We were basically able to punch in an applying patron’s address into the system<https://factfinder.census.gov/faces/nav/jsf/pages/searchresults.xhtml?refresh=t> and based on the Economic Place results, we were able to easily determine the classification.
However, American Factfinder is going offline on March 31st and we are having some issues with navigating the Census Data website thus far. As I am waiting to hear a reply from the Census Data website of whether this feature will be part of the migration or going obsolete, we are exploring other options, such as working with Google Maps. Nothing is showing the ease of access we are hoping for thus far.
Would anyone mind sharing their foolproof go to for determining residency and where mileages are paid?
Thanks in advance for your help and advice.
