Loudoun County Public Library ranked as one of the top 10 in the nation
The Loudoun County Public Library has been ranked as one of the top ten libraries in the United States by the highly regarded Hennen’s American Public Library Ratings (HAPLR).
The 2008 HAPLR edition rates over 9,000 public libraries in the U.S. using the latest federal population data. Libraries are rated, scored and ranked on 15 input and output measures. Based on those measures, Loudoun County Public Library received a score of 855. “Most libraries score between 260 and 730, so scores above and below those numbers are remarkable,” according to the author, Thomas J. Hennen Jr.
According to the Loudoun County Public Library Director Douglas Henderson, “This top 10 national ranking is a wonderful complement to the 2007 county survey of residents where 95% responded that they were highly satisfied.” He added, “We have a terrific staff.”
