CCPL earns highest ranking in standards

The Campbell County Public Library was one of only four libraries statewide to earn the highest ranking based on Kentucky Public Library Association (KPLA) standards.

CCPL reached exemplary status for the first time, along with Scott County. Kenton and McCracken County Public Libraries maintained their exemplary level status.

The KPLA Standards, created in 2002, are updated every three years to make sure libraries improve to meet evolving needs. CCPL earned the basic rating in 2005 and has risen steadily in the rankings since then, making the improvements required to meet the higher standards.

Libraries are judged on specific criteria in categories such as administration, collections, services, facilities and technology.

“There are a few criteria that we still need to meet, such as the number of square feet of building space available per capita, but overall we are doing well and I’m proud of our achievements,” said JC Morgan, director.

Fifty-two libraries participated in the 2014-2015 standards evaluation cycle.

“We are proud that Northern Kentucky has two libraries that currently meet the exemplary standard,” Morgan said. “Our entire region is fortunate have strong library systems that serve our population,” he said.
