The Akron-Summit County Public Library again has been recognized with four stars in the latest round of the LJ Index of Public Library Service, a national rating of public libraries in the Library Journal.
America’s Star Libraries identifies libraries in the United States of America that are delivering exceptional service. LJ Index scores are based on four per capita service output statistics: library visits, items borrowed, program attendance and public Internet computer use.
With four stars, the Akron –Summit County Public Library system received the highest rating in Ohio in its expenditure range.
LJ Index scores and star ratings are based on data reported annually by public libraries to their state library agencies and compiled nationally by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
“We strive to provide value to our community each day,” said Library Director David Jennings, “and to have that value recognized at the national level is truly appreciated.”
