Six NJ Libraries Named Star Libraries by Library Journal

Library Journal’s fourth national rating of public libraries, the LJ Index of Public library Service 2011, in the Nov. 1, 2011 edition,  identified 262 Star libraries, which included six from New Jersey.

Created by Keith Curry Lance and Ray Lyons and based on 2009 data from the IMLS, it rated 7,513 public libraries. The top libraries in each group got five, four or three stars. All rated libraries may use their scores to inform their stakeholders of achievements and service opportunities, and improve library awareness and funding.

NJ libraries receiving five stars were:  Avalon, Bernardsville and the Mercer County Library System. The Princeton Library received four stars; the Roseland Library and the Ocean County Library System each received three stars.
