We're Three for Three!
For the third year in a row, the Arlington Heights Memorial Library has received a five-star rating in Library Journal's national rating of public libraries, the LJ Index of Public Library Service 2010. Five stars is the highest rating that a library can receive. Only 85 libraries across the country received this rating which is based on the annual number of library visits, circulation, program attendance and public Internet computer use.
More than ever in these difficult economic times, people realize the value of their libraries. Our annual circulation is at an all-time high, and free programs, like our job seekers programs, money talks and cultural programs, have filled our meeting rooms with capacity crowds. We greatly appreciate the support of our community!
