Cleveland Public Library
(CPL) was ranked one of the top four libraries in the country, receiving the highest possible rating of five stars in the Library Journal’s
America’s Star Libraries 2011.
Index of Public Library Service ranks more than 7,000 library systems in four categories: library visits, circulation, program attendance, and public Internet usage. Cleveland Public Library ranked 4th out of all library systems nationwide in its category and improved its overall ranking because of increases in circulation and higher usage of computers as even more community members turn to libraries for resources in these tougher financial times.
“The Library Journal
’s ranking is just more proof that Cleveland Public Library is providing superior service and value to our city and region by promoting both a love of books and reading while propelling Cleveland forward through our community-based programming,” CPL executive director Felton Thomas said. “It’s exciting to see that our signature collections and progressive community agenda are making a difference.”
