Loudonville Public Library regains status as one of America's Star Libraries 2013

Each fall, the Library Journal publishes The LJ Index of Public Library Service, which rates libraries nationwide in four categories. These categories include: circulation per capita, visits per capita, program attendance per capita and public Internet computer users. In this year's index, Loudonville Public Library rated #19 of all libraries across the nation in our budget category of $400,000 to $999,999. Only one other Ohio library, Brumback in Van Wert, rated above Loudonville at #18. Although we have not been listed as a star library for the past couple of years, this status is not new. Loudonville rated in the top 20 in 2008, 2009 and 2010. For more information, the complete index is available at http://lj.libraryjournal.com/2013/11/managing-libraries/lj-index/class-of-2013/the-star-libraries-2013/
