HOT, NEW AND TIMELY

February 23, 2009

We're a five-star library!

Library Journal, a professional publication, recently released a new rating system for America's public libraries, and we received the best rating — five stars

Thanks to our wonderful patrons, staff, and volunteers who help make the Grandview Library what it is: An involved partner in the social, cultural, educational and recreational life of the community it serves.

The index more than of 7,000 public libraries measures visits, circulation, public computers, and program popularity. The Grandview Library received five stars among 1,125 libraries within the same operating expenditure catagory! (PDF chart)

Four of Ohio's 15 five-star libraries are right here in the Columbus area: Grandview Library, Columbus Metropolitan Library, Upper Arlington Public Library, and Worthington Public LibraryCongratulations to the 31 Ohio public libraries receiving star ratings!

Read more in the Library Journal issue America's Star Libraries (February 15, 2009), including Director Mary Ludlum's article "Grandview Heights Public Library: A Destination Library".

Check out the Columbus Dispatch article titled "Ohio leads in top-ranked libraries" (February 21, 2009).

Thank you for making the Grandview Library such a great place!
