Heights Libraries earns top rating
The Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library has again received the highest rating in Library Journal’s 2012 Index of Public Library Service.
Heights Libraries has earned five stars in four of the five years that Library Journal has published the ratings, starting in 2008. Libraries are categorized by yearly expenditure and rated on four criteria: circulation, visits, program attendance and Internet terminal use.
“This shows what we’ve known all along: more and more people in our community are using the library,” said Nancy Levin, Heights Libraries director. “We are always busy, and I don’t see that trend reversing anytime soon. Our community depends on us more than ever, for everything from free entertainment with books and DVDs, to Internet access and free computer classes.”
Sheryl Banks is the marketing and community relations manager for the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library.
