America’s Star Libraries

Every year Library Journal groups eligible libraries by total operating expenditures and compares them to peer libraries. Their rating is based on five measures: library visits, circulation, program attendance, public internet terminal use, and electronic circulation. For more information, check out their article in Library Journal.
