Out of thousands of libraries across the country, three Kansas libraries were recognized for their outstanding services – again! The rankings were released in April by Hennen’s American Public Library Ratings 2010 (HAPLR). A total of 7,930 libraries were reviewed for the rankings. The Kansas libraries recognized in 2010 are all repeat winner. They include:
Seneca Free Library ranked seventh in the 1,000 to 2,499 population category out of 1,479 libraries and has made the list every year since 2004.
Hays Public Library ranked fourth in the 10,000 population category, out of 1,773 libraries serving the population 10,000 to 24,999. Hays Public has made the list every year since 2005.

“It is quite a compliment that three Kansas libraries made the 2010 HAPLR list, and have bee recognized repeatedly for their outstanding service. This again confirms the importance of the library as an essential community resource.” said State Librarian Jo Budler. “We are honored and challenge all libraries to continue to provide excellent service.”
