Library Journal has named the Grandview Heights Public Library one of America’s best public libraries with a ranking of five stars for the 9th consecutive year.
GHPL also ranked 2nd in the nation in its size category for the 4th consecutive year.
The Library Journal Index of Public Library Service identified outstanding public libraries in its America’s Star Libraries 2016. Ratings are based on 2014 data from the IMLS—circulation (physical and digital materials), visits, program attendance, and Internet use, each per capita.
More than 7,300 libraries across the country were evaluated, with 260 receiving a starred rating and 85 libraries receiving a five-star rating.
GHPL is one of only 17 libraries nationwide to receive a five-star rating in all nine editions.
Your continued support has made GHPL one of the best public libraries in the country! Thank you!
In addition to GHPL, five other Central Ohio library systems received star ratings:
