HCPL Named 4-Star Library
HCPL was recognized as a 4-Star Library by Library Journal as part of their America’s Star Libraries in 2019. We were one of eleven libraries of our population size to be awarded four stars, and one of two in Virginia.
Stars are awarded to public libraries with high per-capita usage and engagement in terms of library visits, program attendance, circulation, and technology use. Usage data recently released by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) for FY17 informs the awards. For 2019, 6,333 U.S. public libraries qualified to be rated in the Index. Of these, 261 Star Libraries received either three-Star, four-Star, or five-Star designations.
We earned this designation because of your support and participation. Thank you for helping us become an award-winning library!
