Library Journal has recognized the Grandview Heights Public Library as the best public library in America in its category—for the second consecutive time.
This also marks the fifth consecutive time the Grandview Library has received five stars from the Library Journal Index of Public Library Service, a national rating of public libraries, since the ratings began. (Only 30 libraries have received five stars five times in all categories.)
The index identifies 262 “star” libraries (out of 7,570 public libraries) in its America’s Star Libraries 2012. It is based on 2010 data from the IMLS—circulation, visits, program attendance and Internet use, each per capita.
Your continued support has made the Grandview Library one of the best public libraries in the country! Thank you!
In addition to the Grandview Library, four other Franklin County library systems received star ratings:
- Columbus Metropolitan Library (#4 in its category)
- Upper Arlington Public Library (#12)
- Westerville Public Library (#11)
- Worthington Public Library (#2)
