Awarded by Virginia Public Library Director's Association

HCPL website homepageHenrico County Public Library (HCPL) launched its new website ( on February 17, 2014. It had been nearly five years since the last website redesign in March 2009. The two goals of this most recent web redesign was to move to a content management system (CMS) and to make the website easier for customers to use and find what they need. Some small but important changes should be noted in the current site. Changes that make the new site more useable and modern include:

  • Larger "slider" graphics on the front page
  • More informative sidebar banners on the front page
  • Improved "How do I" mega-menu in the navigation
  • Reorganization of Kid's site content and more kid-friendly design
  • Blog-driven "For Grown-ups" page that allows Children's staff to contribute new content
  • Dynamic and informative location page and branch pages
