Mooresville Public Library Rated #2 in the State
According to the 2010 Hennen’s American Public Library Ratings (HAPLR) Index, the Mooresville Public Library is rated second in the state for its effectiveness in serving its community.
Mooresville’s Public Library had an overall effectiveness rating of 89.4% and was second only to the Chapel Hill Public Library with an overall rating of 92.3%.
The 2010 Edition of the HAPLR Index reviewed 7,930 public libraries in the United States and rated their effectiveness using a formula which includes, but is not limited to, budget appropriations, expenditures, staffing, materials, circulation and the library’s usage by the community it serves.
“The Town of Mooresville and the citizens of our community have a library of which they can be proud,” said Library Director John Pritchard. “It is always good to see this verified by outside sources. None of this could happen without the tremendous support of the Town, Iredell County, our citizens, and our dedicated, knowledgeable and hard-working staff.”
“Congratulations to our library employees for providing a top-quality library program for Mooresville and the surrounding community,” said Assistant Town Manager Erskine Smith. “While other communities are curtailing library services we have been fortunate that, even when Iredell County had to reduce funding, the Town Board maintained a strong commitment to the Mooresville Public Library.”
