We're a five-star library—again!
The Grandview Heights Public Library has been recognized as one of America's five-star public libraries—for the third consecutive time!
The Library Journal Index of Public Library Service, a national rating of public libraries, identifies 258 "star" libraries (out of 7,407 public libraries) in its America's Star Libraries 2010. It is based on 2008 data from the IMLS—circulation, visits, program attendance and Internet use.
The Grandview Library came in first out of 31 public libraries in our category, and is one of 85 five-star libraries in the entire nation!
Thank you for supporting your Library, a place where the community truly connects. We are proud to continue serving the needs our patrons and providing the best service we can. We can't thank you enough for your support!
In addition to Grandview, four other Franklin County library systems received five-star ratings:
- Columbus Metropolitan Library (#1 in its category)
- Upper Arlington Public Library (#1)
- Westerville Public Library (#2)
- Worthington Public Library (#4)
