Excellent news! Once again, Darien Library has been named a Five Star library by Library Journal (LJ). LJ uses four objective measures (visits, circulation, program attendance, and internet computer use per capita) to compare the level of services libraries provide to their communities. Darien Library was ranked fourth in the nation among public libraries with budgets between $1 million and $5 million.
Sponsored by Baker & Taylor's Bibliostat, this round of the LJ Index is based on 2008 data from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), reflecting service since the onset of the recession. 7407 public libraries were rated in this study.
