Well there are a lot of tools to help you pick the right library or
tool from cpan :
cpanra(n)tings, rt.cpan, search.cpan.org will show the date/frequency
of release, number of bugs, number of cpan-tester fails, you can check
the kwalitee on the kwalitee site, or look at the recomended modules
list on the perl 5 wiki.

You could even ask on one of several perl beginner or specialisation
lists, or even your local perl monger list or meeting.
