The library can rank in four levels. The lowest is basic, then moderate, then enhanced, and the top is excellent. Below, you will see the various standards and how we rank in both service and municipal populations. As you can see, there are real differences between the service and municipal population figures.
Designed to be used in planning processes, the standards look at libraries through two lenses: Service Population and Municipal Population.
