Westerville Public Library is a five-star library.

The Westerville Public Library has once again been recognized as a Five-Star Library by Library Journal. This year 7,349 public libraries nationwide qualified to be rated in the LJ Index of Public Library Service. This figure is somewhat lower than last year’s, due in part to the introduction of the new output measure, e-circ. Only 85 libraries were awarded a five-star rating, placing Westerville in the top 1% of the nation’s public libraries.

This prestigious and very welcome recognition is awarded to libraries that are the heaviest used and most cost-efficient in the nation. Ratings are determined by community support, number of library visits, items borrowed, program attendance, computer usage and cost per capita.

We are grateful and humbled by this national recognition. We also have a deep and sincere appreciation for our role in the community, our customers, the Library Board of Trustees, an outstanding staff and our wonderful community partners that continually contribute to our success.
