The eighth National Conference of the Public Library Association (PLA) was held in Charlotte, North Carolina from March 28 to April 1, 2000. 

Thomas J. Hennen Jr. spoke on March 30 from 10:30 to 11:45 A.M. in Room 202.  His topic is “The Best Libraries in America: An Exploration of the HAPLR Index.” 


Library Journal designated the program a “pick.”  LJ "picks" represent current "burning issues" in the public library field, and most are programs to which an LJ reporter has been assigned.  They noted: “Hear Tom Hennen defend his HAPLR (Hennen's American Public Library Ratings) and attempt to answer that question. Many think it is still unanswered, despite his efforts.”
