2017 Annual Report

2017 was a year of partnerships for CRRL. With grants from local and national organizations, we were able to serve our community better than ever before. Our biggest partnership was with you. We answered your research questions--over 340,000 of them--and checked out more than 3 million items. With more than 100,000 people of all ages joining us for classes and programs, it's not surprising we were voted a family favorite by readers of a local parenting magazine. Thank you for a great year, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
