YAY!!! The "Library Journal Index of Public Library Service" has rated the Cleveland Public Library as a 5-star library!!
The LJ Index compares same-sized public libraries with their peers based on four measures: circulation, library visits, program attendance, and public Internet computer use.
There are 7,349 public libraries in the United States, but just 260 have received three, four, or five Stars from the LJ Index.
Ohio has more 5-star libraries (25) than any other state except New York (35). Illiniois is second with 19. Ten states have none.
