CRRL Ranked #5 Nationally

Hennen's American Public Library Rankings (the HAPLR Index) recently ranked the CRRL fifth nationally and first in the state of Virginia amongst libraries serving 250,000 to 500,000 people. This ranking underscores the CRRL's cost-effective use of tax dollars in the provision of quality library service.

This year marks the 10th edition of the HAPLR Index, and the CRRL has been rated a Top Ten Library in five of those editions.

The 2010 HAPLR ratings are based on data collected from nearly 8,000 public libraries and focus on a library's circulation, checkouts, visits, staffing levels, funding and reference desk questions.
