Port Washington Has A 5-Star Library

Library receives highest rating.

The Library Journal Index of Public Library Service 2012 is out, and the Port Washington Public Library is a 5-Star Library.

This year, 262 libraries received star designations. Port Washington is one of 86 libraries nationally to receive the highest rating of five stars, and one of 111 libraries that has received a star designation in all five Library Journal issues.

The survey uses four categories of data and compares U.S. public libraries on the quantities of services they deliver in the following areas: circulation, visits, program attendance and public internet use.

The library thanks community members for making it a 5-Star institution.

Way off the mark the Port Library is one of the better ones in Nassau County. The old adage is true you do get what you pay for!

The Port Washington Library is one of our community's greatest assets. Their programming from early childhood to senior citizens is amazing as well as the services, classes, musical performances, films and gallery level art exhibitions they provide and present. It was a huge draw for my family and I when we chose to move to Port Washington. It truly deserves the 5 star rating.

Yes, I think I've got it: You won't get off your couch.
