Westerville Public Library is a five-star library.

Once again, Library Journal has recognized the Westerville Public Library as a Five-Star Library. Of the 7,663 public libraries nationwide that were ranked this year, only 85 were awarded a five-star rating, placing Westerville in the top 1% of all public libraries in the United States.

This prestigious and very welcomed national recognition is awarded to libraries that are the heaviest used and most cost efficient. Ratings are determined by community support, number of library visits, items borrowed, program attendance, computer usage and cost per capita. Scores are then compared to those of libraries within the same budget range.

We are grateful and humbled by this national recognition. We have a deep appreciation for the role our customers, Library Board of Trustees, dedicated and top-notch staff and wonderful community partners have played in this accomplishment.

We thank you for helping us achieve the ranking as one of America's finest libraries. We are proud of our past successes and with your continued support, we are excited about our future.
