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.
