We're happy to share that the Vineyard Haven Public Library has once again been named one of 263 "star" libraries (out of 7,573 rated) in Library Journal's annual rating of U.S. public libraries. The rating is based on four per-capita public service indicators—circulation, visits, program attendance, and public Internet use—from 2011 data collected by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. There are eleven "star" libraries in Massachusetts, also including the West Tisbury Library on Martha's Vineyard. Nine of the eleven Massachusetts star libraries are members of the CLAMS network.
