For the seventh consecutive time, Arlington Heights Memorial Library has received a five-star rating in Library Journal's national rating of public libraries. Five stars is the highest rating that a library can receive, and we are one of only 21 libraries in the nation to have earned five stars for each of the past seven years. Star ratings are based on the annual number of library visits, circulation, program attendance and public Internet computer use.
 
This is an honor for not only our staff and the Library Board of Trustees, but also for you, our customers. Thank you for making us a 5-star library once again. See Library Journal's 2014 index of star libraries.
