Library Journal has named the Grandview Heights Public Library (GHPL) one of America’s best public libraries with a ranking of five stars for the 10th consecutive year.
Over the 10 editions of the index, 606 libraries have received a starred rating in one or more years. A total of 69 libraries received stars in each of the 10 editions. Of those, 13 U.S. public libraries earned a five-star rating each and every year.
This year, the index evaluated 7,409 U.S. public libraries across the country, with 259 receiving a starred rating and 85 libraries receiving a five-star rating. Ratings are based on 2015 data from the IMLS—circulation (physical and digital materials), visits, program attendance, and Internet use, each per capita.
In addition to GHPL, six other Central Ohio library systems received star ratings: Bexley Public Library, Columbus Metropolitan Library, Upper Arlington Public Library, Wagnalls Memorial Library, Westerville Public Library, and Worthington Libraries.
Your continued support has made GHPL one of the best public libraries in the country! Thank you!
