Lincoln Library Named "5 Star Library for Public Service"-March 13, 2009

A recent survey by Library Journal magazine names the Lincoln Public Library as one of the best public libraries in the state. The survey ranked libraries based on outputs such as circulation and program attendance, assigning Michelin Guide-like ratings or five, four or three stars. Out of 7,115 public libraries surveyed, 256 receive star ratings. The Lincoln Public Library received five stars. “We are a community oriented library,” said Library Director Carol Riley. “We try to respond to our particular community, and the community uses the library. We have an very interactive staff that pays attention and welcomes every person who comes into the library,” she said. She’s confident that the townspeople will continue to support the library, both by their use of the facility and financially. Membership in the Friends of the Lincoln Library is up, and the annual membership drive surpassed its goal, and now have over 150 members. The Library Journal Index of Public Library Service, which was the magazine’s February issue cover story, measured four outputs --- circulation per capita, visits per capita, program attendance per capita, and public Internet use per capita --- based on 2006 data collected by the Institute of Museum and Library Science
