Importing xlrd

This is probably a simple question to most of you, but here goes.
I've downloaded the xlrd (version 0.6.1) module and placed in in the
site-packages folder.  Now, when I write a script, I type:

import sys
import xlrd

When I run it, there is an import error saying there is no module
named xlrd.  However when I type sys.path, the site-packages folder is
definitely in the path.  Do I somehow need to run the xlrd
first before importing?

Any help would be appreciated.
